Idling wastes fuel & money. All Idling vehicles get ZERO miles-per-gallon while idling. Trucks and other large vehicles also tend to waste more fuel than smaller vehicles. Idling also can cause more engine wear-and-tear over time, resulting in higher maintenance costs. Idling burns up oil – the longer you leave your engine idling causes more motor oil to be circulated and burned up. So in addition to cutting back on air pollution, not idling your car also saves your engine, time and money.
