Stop Idling And Turn Off Your Car #green

Stop Idling And Turn Off Your Car #green

Contrary to popular opinion/rumor, whenever possible it is better to shut off your car’s engine than it is to let it idle . In a time of high gas prices, climate change, and modern car engines, it’s important to learn when we should be shutting off our engines and when we should be leaving them on. Let’s face it; a car going 0 miles per hour is getting 0 MPG. It’s still using a minute amount of gasoline to keep running but it’s not converting that energy into motion — you are at a standstill, and often for much more than just a few seconds. The EPA says that if you expect to be idling more than 15-30 seconds, you can save gas (and money) by turning the engine off and restarting it when you need to move. I have seen cars idling for 10-15 minutes outside of a CVS while one of the passengers sits inside listening to the radio; talk about wasting gas and money!
