Have you noticed all the cars restarting at traffic lights lately?

Another scheme to make you feel good about destroying, I mean saving the environment, while you destroy your engine.

Feeling good about saving the earth, such BS.
Rented a car recently where the engine shuts off when stopped at a traffic light, then starts back up when taking your foot off the brake. Did not like it.

Mine automatically does that , and as soon as I take my foot off the brake it starts up and takes off .

@TexChik I rented a car like that for a trip. I absolutely hated it.

Electric cars don't even need to be restarted. There is nothing you could start.

@TexChik I don't have a car anyway 🛵

@TexChik Only a bicycle, a motor scooter, a rowing boat, oh, and my feet 😏

It might be effective if you are often stationary for long periods. If you have lots of short stops then replacing the bigger battery could do more harm than any emissions. There’s usually a switch to disable it.

No, but I have noticed all the cars NOT restarting at intersections!

Been like that for years where have you been?
