With the average cost of gas in the U.S. skyrocketing, now is the perfect time to be just a little bit greener in order to save a little green. Here are ten methods you can use to reduce your overall fuel consumption.
This doesn’t look that hard to make! Pedal powered electricity generator! Charge your cell phone, laptop, or run a small appliance or two. This would make a great alternative or supplement to an old gas generator. When you lose power in a storm you know you’re not going to make it to the gym that week or it’s at the least going to disrupt your routine anyway, so why not stay in shape at home by peddling away!
Or you can buy prebuilt generators. Mount any old bike on the stand and pedal away.
I think the portable version is my favorite. Attach it to your bike and generate power while you ride to work or to the store.
