Analyzing the annual idling habits, costs, and emissions in EMS fleets
Idle Time
On average, EMS vehicles idle for 60% of their daily shift
Fuel Consumption
In a 24/7 slip-seat scenario, this equates to 3,416 gal. (annually) of fuel consumed at idle
Fuel Costs
These 3,416 gallons of wasted fuel translates to $8,814 in wasted fuel costs every year
Engine Wear
Idling 60% of the time, this equates to 173,094 miles of unnecessary engine wear
Maintenance Costs
These 173,094 miles of engine wear equate to $12,982 in associated maintenance costs
CO2 Emissions
Idling 60% of the time, EMS fleets produce 63,545 lbs. of CO2 emissions
*The calculations and figures presented in this fleet review are budgetary based on industry standards and are subject to fluctuation, change, and actual fleet numbers. Fuel costs used are based on annual averages for the 2018 calendar year for diesel and gasoline. Values used for fuel consumption are based on industry averages and are subject to vary from vehicle to vehicle. The 32.93 mi. value used for engine wear per hour of idling is based on collected industry data . The industry-assumed idling percentage is based on data gathered from GRIP Idle Management Inc. customers as well as retrievable online data. Maintenance cost is based on vehicle classification and fuel type, including light duty gasoline, light duty diesel, heavy duty gasoline, heavy duty diesel, and combined averages when gasoline vs diesel fleet makeup is not provided.
