Tip # 41

 Avoid idling your vehicle for more than one minute

Instead of letting your car idle, turn off the ignition. It uses less gas and emits less CO2 to stop and restart your car than to let it run. In fact, idling uses twice as much gas as driving!  If every driver in Canada avoided idling for five minutes a day, we could prevent 1.6 million metric tons of COfrom being emitted.
