And the whole international cargo/tanker shipping industry is definitely not on board and puts out way more emissions than all light vehicles on the planet but, you need to feel all guilty because you have an SUV or any other not not so, fuel friendly vehicle.
No kidding ?
Care to calculate what the emissions footprint would be if the cargo/tanker stuff had to be moved with light vehicles ?

Talk about things that make you go hummm.... interesting too think about. The ships probably burn less fuel per ton of cargo moved but, have zero emission controls (perhaps they do now but, I'm sure it would be very minimal...& don't have time to research). Whereas, the light vehicles will use more fuel but, have emissions controls.

Anyway, I don't want to take this thread too off topic (yes, I'm guilty & partially to blame). If you or anyone else would like to start a thread for this type of topic go for it! :)

I had it on a rental. Made it about 2 lights before I said wtf and turned it off. But agree 100% you'll wear out the starter, etc. before you make your money back on gas shaved especially since its just about vapors @ idle if even that! :350:

My 650hp supercharged c7 Corvette z06 has a, wait for it, ALWAYS ACTIVE WITH NO WAY TO DISABLE 4 cylinder mode while driving in automatic...even in sport mode. That's after paying a fortune for a Chevy and nearly 5 grand in gas guzzler tax.

Thank God an aftermarket disabler was available. Holy @#$! was I pissed.

How much A.S.S can one handle? How does this go when you're trying to beat someone off the mark? They're off and moving while your engine is still kicking over on the line haha! Few 10ths of a second lost there I'd say. Make up for the fumes by planting your foot.
