If you must drive, choose a car that has been driven recently, rather than the one that has been sitting. Starting a cold car? Warm up for 30 seconds, drive gently and avoid use of heater or AC for at least 10 minutes. Car-pool, bus, bike, walk. Cluster errands into the same trips. Avoid cold starts. If there’s a choice, use the engine that’s still warm. Park where you needn’t move your car until the next drive, and can drive off with minimum maneuvering.
