Some of the technology that helps make hybrid vehicles so efficient will soon be making its way into non-hybrid cars as well.

Using Auto Start-Stop will increase fuel economy in city driving by at least 4 percent up to as much as 10 percent, depending on the particular vehicle size and usage. Auto Start-Stop also reduces all tailpipe emissions to zero when the vehicle is at a stop.

My wife's BMW 1-Series 120d had Auto-Stop start back in 2008. I believe the technology was available in BMWs from 2007.

It is not true that vehicle emissions come to zero from the tailpipe when the engine stops. The typical tail pipe has a volume of 50 litres and when the engine stops the emissions which were on wow look it levitra samples in canada their way out continue to do so, but at reduced rate.
