I'm car light, not car free. Last time I got an oil change, the shop put a sticker in my window reminding me to get a new one in 3,500 miles. I just crossed that threshold yesterday.
Guess when that sticker was put on my window.
July 2008. That's an average of about 160 miles of driving per month, not in a place you might expect like New York City, San Francisco, Boston, Washington DC, or Philadelphia . . . IN LA COUNTY :) It's all about living in a walkable neighborhood with good transit, looking for opportunities to use a bike, and putting in some effort when you are trapped in the burbs.
Yea boi!!! Suck on that BP!
