"If you're stopped for more than ten, turn it off and on again!"


Idling for more than 3 minutes (except in traffic or extreme temperatures) is against the law in Connecticut. 

10 seconds of idling uses about the same amount of fuel as restarting your engine

12 million gallons of fuels is wasted by idling in the US every day. 

Even in cold weather, engines only need 30 seconds to warm up. 

Pollutants from  idling contribute to climate change as well as asthma and other respiratory diseases, especially in children.
