1 PETROL WASTED WITH THE CAR AT A STANDSTILL. In view of the argent need to econo- mise petrol in every way possible. and of the very limited supplies available for civilian use, we should once more emphasise the importance of stopping the engine whenever the car is brought to a halt of more than a few memeuts' duration. The majority of modern carburetieri, are so set that they deliver an exceed- ingly rich mixture to the cylinders when the engine is "idling," with the throttle almost closed, and the consumption of fuel in these conditions during a halt of several minutes is quite appreciable. It may be argued that petrol licence holders, being allowed a certain monthly quantity of spirit, have a perfect right to OFe it as they think best, but we would point ont that it is the desire of the Government that as little petrol as possible should be purchased and consumed, even though the licence holder is legally entitled to buy and use up to the maximum sanctioned on his permit. It is, of course, well known that the need for petrol rationing is caused principally by the immense require- ments of the Navy and Army, snd for this reason commanding OffiCHri cannot too forcibly impress upon their subordinates in charge of oars the importance of never allowing the en- gine to run unnecessarily. Waste of* this kind by Service drivers has three bad effects: It involves unjustified expenditure of public money, it means that less petrol is available for the civilian population, and it creates dis- content in the minds of those who, while they are doiug their best to help the country's cause, are often much hampered in thoir work by the petrol restrictions. ■ ■
