rsz_shutterstock_231205252….using the transport calculator developed for EPA Victoria Greenhouse Calculator… assumed ‘small’ car (Corolla size), 10 km/h average speed, with stops every 50 metres and  Darwin climate…results are only approximate, as the model is fairly basic and changes in environmental and traffic conditions and driving techniques can affect the outcomes significantly…The big message was that air conditioner usage was almost half of total fuel use under these conditions.
