Stop Idling Your Car
From Canada's Office of Energy Efficiency:
Canada estimates that if every driver avoided idling for five minutes a day, they would prevent more than 1 million tons of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere and save 1.8 million litres of fuel per day.
Idling your car for more than 10 seconds uses more fuel than restarting your engine.
Comment: Canada has led the way in the fight against engine idling.
