saving energy

Asked by GuruBYCD4 Dec 13, 2018 at 06:22 PM about the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime Premium

Question type: General

My husband turns off our 2017 Prius Prime at stop lights even though it is in
battery mode. Does this help save energy or is it actually putting wear on some
part of the car like the starter system?

Not using energy clearly saves energy. I can't imagine it is significant though.
