It does not use extra fuel or damage your engine to turn the engine off and on and off and on...

because most cars today use electronic fuel injection.


When you leave the engine running on a vehicle that's not moving, it's called "idling."
"There's lots of idling going on of internal combustion engines that we are dead set against," -- Ray & Tom Magliozzi, aka "Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers," of the award winning NPR show, Car Talk. Shown here, a still shot from the movie, Idle Threat.

Come enjoy this FREE public movie event, Idle Threat, Man on Emission! Meet George Pakenham, the movie's director, and find out how you can save money while cutting waste and pollution.

"In the vein of Michael Moore’s cinéma vérité, Pakenham becomes our man on the street, accosting idlers who pollute the streets of NYC with their vehicles’ exhaust. The film manages to make you realize the deadly dangers present at the same time it makes you laugh out loud.” – Prof. Cathleen Miller, San Jose State University, author of Champion of Choice
