WHY3.8 millions gallons of gas are wasted on idling in the US...every day. That's 34,000 tons of CO2*. We will reduce air pollution & our demand for gas by not idling. *The same CO2 is emitted by burning 36 millionpounds of coal.
HOW Turn off our cars when parked for more than 10 seconds. Keep on our coats to stay warm. Note: newer cars don't need as much time to warm up before driving.
