Infographic: How to Correctly Warm Up Your Car in Winter
Have you heard the debate that we don’t need to idle our vehicles to warm them up? Have you heard that some states have laws forbidding you from leaving your car idling in your driveway in several states? We’re in the middle of winter, and have had several streaks of single degree and freezing temperatures. So what should we do? Idle our cars or head out on our commute?
