Fuel Reduction

Idling your vehicle is a waste of gas and it pollutes our air. Most people who idle hold on to old untrue myths.

When you idle you get 0 miles per gallon and you contribute lots of pollution into our air. For every 10 minutes of idling you have wasted enough gas to travel 5 miles. Exhaust fumes are toxic and can be compared to second hand tobacco smoke, and wood smoke.

Save some money and do something good for the environment, stop idling you vehicle.
