10 Small Steps to Reducing Transportation Costs
- Check your tires. Keeping your tires inflated properly can improve gas mileage by more than 3%.
- Visit the Fort Collins Bike Library when you have guests in town to borrow bikes for a day or month.
- Visit Smart Trips (https://www.smarttrips.org/) to join a carpool or share a ride to a specific event such as a Nuggets game.
- Use cruise control. Each 5 mph over 60 mph is like paying an additional 10 cents per gallon for gas.
- Switch your car engine so that you can use biodiesel; kits are available on-line.
- Buy a hybrid vehicle.
- Find your zen; aggressive driving can lower your gas mileage by 33% at highway speeds and by 5% around town.
- Avoid idling at lights, when picking up your children or waiting for the train. Turn your engine off after 30 seconds of waiting.
- Find a tire dealer or service station that put old tires to new uses: floor mats, adhesives, gaskets, shoe soles, and more.
- Use Transfort’s new clean compressed natural gas buses.
