Fleet FAQ? Fleet Management & Leasing

Q. Is there ever a reason to let your car idle?

April 10, 2018, by - Also by this author

A. The short answer is yes. Legitimate reasons for idling include: needing power from the engine to run specialized equipment and keeping cabs warm when outside temperatures are dangerously low.  In these cases, managers may want to consider dividing fleets into class categories for more accurate data.
