You can save money while driving by cutting your engine when it is possible. So, long stop ? Kill your engine !
Stop your car’s engine when stopping for more than a minute
When you keep your car’s engine running for more than 60 seconds, even if not driving, you are actually burning more fuel than when stopping and re-starting it.
A car releases 20 times more CO2 in the air when you are waiting at a red light than when driving at a speed of 50 kilometres per hour.
So, ride-sharing, quick stop for shopping or else, if you have to stop for a couple of minutes, be sure to stop your car ‘s engine too. Using the “Start & Stop” technology helps ease this process.
To save money and reduce pollution : kill your engine.
