A surefire way to improve your gas mileage
No, it isn't a gadget you attach to your car or an additive in your gas or oil. Here is the big secret.
LOSE SOME WEIGHT.
Read this article and you will see that "Americans are burning nearly 1 billion more gallons of gasoline each year than they did in 1960 because of their expanding waistlines. Simply put, more weight in the car means lower gas mileage."
I hear you. I'm actively seeking to reduce my gravitational attraction with some modest success. Maybe saving a few bucks at the pump will help motivate me.
I'm a Renaissance Man wannabee - I keep getting into weird stuff like trebuchet construction, potato mortars (really cool), bat house construction and strange things like that. I'm over 40, self-employed and the pastor of the Hobart Church of the Nazarene. I married way up, and have two wonderful daughters who continue to amaze me.
