Idling Car Engines

A typical car uses about 1.6 ounces (47cc) of gas for every minute the engine idles. It uses up about one-half ounce (14cc) of gas to start the engine. So, if you turn off the car any time you are likely to stand idling for more than twenty seconds, you will save gasoline, and therefore save money. It costs a bit over US $2.50 per hour to idle your car.
