I consider the layer of dust on my car to be a badge of honor. I probably 
to 2K or less per year. It's only on the weekends if I have a long errand 
to run with time constraints that I use it. Otherwise, its the bike.

I take Caltrain to work from San Mateo to the city. I ride my Brompton to 
and from the train station. On the way home I always smirk as I happily 
breeze by all the cars backed up trying to get on 92 to get to the San 
Mateo Bridge...

Life is good.
