Cold weather driving: did you know?
(NC)—A vehicle left idling for 10 minutes burns about a quarter to a half litre of fuel, resulting in emissions of about 600 to 1,200 grams of CO2 depending on the vehicle and exact conditions. Idling for more than 30 seconds has no benefit for the vehicle and driving for a few minutes is the most efficient way to warm the engine and the cabin.
