Powering on: Zero RPM to receive prestigious state innovation award

How Standing Idle is Setting You Back

Pop quiz: Which uses more fuel and produces more emissions – letting a passenger car idle for 15 seconds or turning off a car and restarting it after 15 seconds? If you answered that restarting the car uses more fuel, you would not be alone. Most people believe that starting is the less efficient option. But that’s not the case, according to research conducted by Argonne National Laboratory. Results of their experiment revealed that just 10 seconds of passenger car idling time actually uses more fuel than stopping and restarting the engine. All of the fuel used during engine idling adds up to a real bottom-line impact. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that Americans waste about 6 billion gallons of gas every year. How many of those gallons are a result of vehicles in your fleet needlessly idling, and how much is it impacting your fuel expense costs? The good new......
