Less stopping and starting means less CO2

Published 10 December 2015 in

Every time you stop then start again in a traffic queue, the engine uses more fuel and therefore produces more CO2. Keep an eye on the traffic ahead and slow down early by gently lifting your foot off the accelerator while keeping the car in gear.

In this way, the traffic may have started moving again by the time you approach the vehicle in front, so you can then change gear and be on your way.
