How to save $2,100 at the pumps
(NC)—A relatively new technology that allows drivers to turn their vehicles on and off at will during idling, called idle start-stop technology, can reduce fuel consumption and emissions in city driving by four to 10 percent, compared to a vehicle without the technology. Over 10 years, this reduction corresponds to fuel savings ranging from $400 to $2,100 and CO2 reductions ranging from about 700 to 3,800 kg. At the high end over 10 years, this is equivalent to removing about 1 in 10 cars from Canadian roads. Source: Natural Resources Canada. www.vehicles.nrcan.gc.ca.
