Tip of the Week

Did you know idling your car creates twice the emissions of a car in motion? Something about holding still. I've been told that starting your car up uses about as much gas as you use by idling for just one minute- 60 seconds- so really it doesn't make much sense to keep the car running, using up gas and emitting carbon dioxide.

Some interesting facts:
Idling 15 min per weekday can cost you up to $100 in wasted gas over the course of a year. American drivers use more than 2 bil gal of fuel each year while idling.

Crazy! Now turn that car off!
