Idling

RAM’s research into vehicle idling times

In order to see where some of our customers could save money and also to do our bit in reducing emissions, we’ve taken a look at some of the idling reports on our systems, and the results that we found showed that some vehicles are wasting huge amounts in fuel as a result of idling. The figures in our research - which looked at idling times of a selection of vehicles over a 1 week period from 10/09/2012 to 17/09/2012 - went from 31 minutes at the lowest end, right up to 7 hours 26 minutes at the higher end.
