free parking for 50+ mpg / alt fuel in Salt Lake City

Quote:
Salt Lake City, Utah (AHN) - Salt Lake City is now on the list of municipalities nationwide that offer free parking as an incentive for people to buy fuel-efficient vehicles. Salt Lake City is offering free-metered parking to residents who drive vehicles that get 50 miles per gallon, have low emissions or are powered by an alternative fuel. - source
matt - time to start that ev conversion!

i wonder what mpg figure they're using - hwy/combined? the article doesn't say.

bad news, matt:

to qualify, the vehicle has to get 50+ mpg (US) in the EPA's official city cycle rating.

according to the city's web site only 3 vehicles made since 1994 currently qualify: the '94 Metro XFi being one of them - woo hoo metro!! (care to guess the other 2?)
