Reduce idling to save over $1,000/yr

According the EPA, a typical heavy-duty truck or bus can burn about one gallon of diesel fuel for each hour it idles , generating significant amounts of pollution, wasting fuel, and causing excessive engine wear.

Assuming $4/gallon, reducing idle time by an hour each work day* could save $1,040 each year per vehicle. That’s a number that can add up quickly for even a small fleet.
