Ford has recently announced plans too introduce fuel-saving start-stop technology on its vehicles beginning in 2012. The feature is slated to be launched at January’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Start-stop technology refers to a car operation system that saves fuel by turning an engine off when the vehicle is idle, and quickly restarting it when the driver releases the brake or steps on the accelerator. Ford expects the system to improve fuel economy by 4% to 10%, the actual result of which is dependent on driving conditions.
