Today’s tip will hopefully help you save a small amount of gas while helping you prolong your life.
Go on a diet and lose some weight.
Look, I know I’m reaching here, but it’s true: if you lose some of that spare tire you’re carrying around your mid-section, you will get better gas mileage. Take that Jared dude from the Subway commercials as an example; he’s not happy about the fact he’s getting free subs for life, he’s just pumped he’s saving on his car’s gas.
As I have stated in previous posts, carrying around an extra 100 pounds will reduce your gas mileage by roughly two percent. For example, if you’re carrying around an extra 25 pounds, you’re reducing your gas mileage by about about two cents per gallon.
So, if you need some extra incentive to get off the couch and stop doing the 12 ounce curls, maybe this’ll do it.
Or, you can check out all the research that links being overweight to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, etc. Whatever floats your boat to get you to live a healthier life, take it and run with it.
No pun intended.
