Five Easy Ways to Conserve Gas

Though the fuel crisis and skyrocketing gas prices seem to have passed, they will be back with a vengeance when our economy returns. Regardless, it is still important to reduce our gas consumption to protect our environment and conserve resources for future generations. Here are 5 easy ways for you to conserve gas while saving money.

1. Travel less. This gas-saving method can be implemented in a variety of ways including planning ahead for your needs, consolidating your trips to the store with other errands, as well as walking and bicycling more, carpooling, utilizing public transportation, and working from home occasionally instead of commuting every day.

2. Properly maintain your car. Regular maintenance of your vehicle is one of the most important things you can do to maximize your vehicle’s performance and increase its longevity. This includes regularly checking tire pressure, changing your oil, replacing air filters and getting tune-ups as recommended in your vehicle’s owner’s manual.

3. Minimize damage to your vehicle. One way to prevent unnecessary damage to your vehicle is to install a set of curb ramps at the end of your roll-over curb driveway entries. Well-made curb ramps minimize damage to your car’s undercarriage, tires, alignment and steering, improving your gas mileage.

4. Drive a fuel efficient car. If you have two vehicles at home, drive the more fuel efficient vehicle whenever possible. And, when you’re in the market for a new car, consider trading in your gas-guzzling SUV or truck for a car that gets better gas mileage, like one of the many hybrids now on the market. Models to consider include the Toyota Prius, Nissan Versa, Ford Fusion Hybrid and the Chrysler Sebring E85.

5. Refill your gas tank slowly. Since modern gas pumps are safety-equipped with vapor returns, that vapor is sucked back out of your car and returned to the underground storage tank where it condenses back into gas. In effect, by pumping faster, you are paying for gas you don’t keep. Instead, pump your gas slowly on the lowest setting to minimize vapor creation and keep most of what you pay for.

By following these five simple tips, you can conserve gas without any significant changes to your driving habits or lifestyle. At the same time, you’ll reduce wear and tear on your vehicle and save time and money. What a bargain!

What do I need to install Bridjit Curb Ramps?

This is one of our most frequently asked questions. Can I install these driveway curb ramps myself? What do I need to assemble them? That’s simple. You’ll need four items: (1) a hammer, (2) a flat blade screwdriver, (3) a short 2” x 4” board or other 4” high blocking material, and (4) a broom and dustpan.

First, sweep up the debris in the gutter and road near your curb.

Second, lay curb ramp (“bridge”) sections together in the gutter.

Third, flip each section away from the curb so that the bridge is upside down and parallel to the gutter.

Fourth, drive the pre-installed galvanized bolts from the center section to the outer section with a hammer.

Fifth, lifting up each section, insert a 2×4” block under the ramp, pry up on the threaded end of the bolt with a screwdriver, pushing down toward the center line of the ramp, and screw in the provided nuts onto each bolt.

Last, return the curb ramps to their installed position at the base of your rollover curb, in the center of your driveway.
