Individual Idling Impact Calculator
Calculate the potential impact that you and your friends would have if you reduced unnecessary vehicle idling.
Surveys show many Canadians idle on average 6-8 minutes per day. This interactive calculator will help you determine how much fuel, GHG emissions and money you will save by cutting back on vehicle idling. The final idling results for each community are based on the 2004 average cost of fuel per litre and average engine size of all light-duty vehicles in each community (Source: DesRosier Automotive Consultants).
Simply indicate the number of drivers that have committed to not idle and the number of minutes per day that you think is reasonable for drivers to avoid idling. The calculator shows you the potential emissions, fuel reduction, and dollar savings that you can achieve!
