Don't Bother

If you go to extreme measures to use less gas in your vehicle you will probably get a visit from people who are very unhappy with you. They will be very displeased that their employer isn’t making money off of your driving and will use legal power to force you to pay them. They get this legal power because of the money and influence their organizations possess. Not buying gas decreases the revenues of these organizations and they aren’t pleased from this. Which company do these people represent? Exxon Mobile? Shell? British Petroleum? Nope, think bigger.

Try the government.

Here’s a story about what happens when you try to fuel your car yourself.

And the moral of the story is: If you try to do something for the environment that isn’t forced on you by the government, they will bite you.

That is stupid.

I see their reasoning in trying to acquire the revenue lost from the gas tax as that's (in theory, God bless) supposed to go towards upkeep of roads which those who turn from the path of gasoline still use.

Hmmm, I think we should try anarchy. Hmmm, too much work. Never mind. :)
