San Francisco gives drivers free fuel for electric cars

San Francisco is giving drivers free fuel for the next year-and-a-half. Of course, there's a catch -- it's for electric cars.

Electric vehicle chargers will be available at no cost at city-owned garages and at SFO through 2013.

The idea is to help electric car drivers top off their charges when they're away from home.

Installation of the charging stations will start next month and should be finished by the end of this year.
