  1. 1. Energy Conservation Project: <ul><ul><li>Fuel Consumption </li></ul></ul>
  2. 2. The Questions? <ul><li>How much fuel do I consume? </li></ul><ul><li>How much fuel could I save by riding my bike to work? </li></ul><ul><li>What else can I do to conserve fuel? </li></ul>
  3. 3. Research Approach: <ul><li>Log all vehicle use for one week. (Distances & Destinations) </li></ul><ul><li>Calculate my truck's fuel economy to determine consumption. </li></ul><ul><li>Use mapquest .com to find the distance from home to work. </li></ul><ul><li>Use that information to calculate savings from biking. </li></ul><ul><li>Look on the web for tips to reduce fuel consumption. </li></ul><ul><li>Analize collected data for other ways to become more efficient. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Results: <ul><li>I drove a total of 45.78 miles in one week. </li></ul><ul><li>I used 2.86 gallons of gas. </li></ul><ul><li>The total cost was $10.30. </li></ul><ul><li>By riding my bike to work I would have saved $4.00. </li></ul><ul><li>I could save additional money by changing my air filter, or buying a car that is more efficient. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Fuel Consumption:
  6. 7. Fuel Cost:
  7. 8. What If?
  8. 9. Conclusions: <ul><li>Minor lifestyle changes can have a huge impact on the environment! </li></ul><ul><li>They will save you a lot of money! </li></ul><ul><li>They can potentially make you a healthier and happier person! </li></ul>
  9. 10. Note: Calculations are based on a fuel economy of 16 mpg, and an average fuel cost of $3.60 per gallon.
  10. 11. What else can I do to conserve fuel? <ul><li>Drive Sensibly </li></ul><ul><li>Don't Speed </li></ul><ul><li>Remove Excess Weight </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid Excess Idling </li></ul><ul><li>Use Cruise Control </li></ul><ul><li>** For more information visit: </li></ul><ul><li>Keep Engine Tuned </li></ul><ul><li>Check/Change Air Filter </li></ul><ul><li>Keep Tires Properly Inflated </li></ul><ul><li>Plan & Combine Trips </li></ul><ul><li>Choose An Efficient Vehicle </li></ul><ul><li>www.fueleconomy.gov </li></ul>
  11. 12. The Future <ul><li>Electric & Hybrid Vehicles are very efficient and their performance is becoming similar to that a traditional vehicle. The Honda Civic Hybrid and the Toyota Prius Hybrid both get 40-50 miles per gallon. </li></ul><ul><li>Fuel Cell Vehicles are coming soon! They run on hydrogen the most abundant resource on earth, and their only emissions are water and heat. </li></ul>
