Winter and idling seem to go hand in hand. I was reminded of this recently when I was reading the Chicago Tribune and saw an article titled “No need to idle in cold.” The article talked about the fact that people believe they need to warm up their cars in winter before they drive. It went on to point out that this was a misconception and in fact because of technologies like electronic fuel injectors warming up was unnecessary. The article also pointed out the obvious negatives of idling: wasting fuel and discharging greenhouse gas emissions.
