DOB2RTO 29 Posted October 20, 2007 Share #1 Posted October 20, 2007 I was watching this show on the National Geographic Channel, and heard something that I once thought was an insult (and funny). They showed a 500+lbs man. They said besides the known problems with obesity, there are others. When (his name) drives his car, he puts so much strain on the engine, HE reduced the fuel economy of his car. I though about it then realized it makes sense. If you hitch a trailer on to the back of a car, pulling that additional weight, will cause poorer fuel economy. Luckily today, we have KING SIZE SUV's that get crappy fuel economy no matter the size of the person driving. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
