Reducing the time a vehicle idles is the simplest form of fuel economy; it can be easy to implement and often requires little or no financial investment.
Why Care About Idling?
• Idling is expensive: Idling may consume a gallon of fuel or more per hour, depending on the vehicle. • Idling pollutes: Each gallon of fuel burned creates about 20 lbs. of greenhouse gases.• Idling threatens health: Breathing vehicle emissions increases the risk of respiratory illness, especially in children.
