Know before you go. If you need to drive, plan the most fuel efficient route using free online tool such as Google maps, taking notice of areas of construction and high traffic. Avoiding these areas can help prevent needless idling. When you must drive, combine trips and car pool.

Reduce, reuse, and recycle!
