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

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