It’s getting a little chilly outside, and many people think that letting their cars idle will help “get their engine running” but in all actuality driving is a much more efficient way to warm your car up then letting it idle. If you often idle in fear that restarting your engine wastes more gas then I am here to bust yet another idling myth, idling for 10 seconds uses more fuel  than restarting your engine. By stopping idling for just 10 minutes you are saving 1 pound of carbon dioxide from being released into the air(the primary contributor to global warming).
