I will still drive. Its 8 miles one way, and 8 miles back home for me. Being in my city, its overcrowded sometimes at rush hour traffic, and at night,
during summer, downtown, the bad people come out. Worked with aguy few years ago, rode his bike to work one day, came in, unched int he face and bump
on his head. bunch of low income late teens ganged up on him just too take his bike! im driving*
But for those in less violent citys..bike is the way to go. I know about engines and oil. No matter how good a car or truk is rated in terms of
MPG..yuo cannot avoid city traffic. the constant sitting and burning of fuel in bumper to bumper trafffic, constatn stop signs, car pile up..doing
that burns WAY more fuel. an engine was designed to run constant, not run at idle. thats when more carbon deposits build up in the engine, outisde of
neglegent care, and cause more fuel loss over time.
kinda wish electric cars were all around us now. come in handy at times like this! electricity is way cheaper than fuel. gas..is old school
technology now, and nothing more than a money making scheme. we need, to switch to something more efficient.
