Commented On: The Cost Of Obesity To Fuel Use? One Billion Gallons A Year

Interesting...in over 100k miles, part of which I drove alone, and part of which I carried a 350 lb. passenger in my 1991 Geo Metro, I noticed:
No difference in fuel economy
No difference in brake life
No problems with springs or shocks
No transmission problems (torque converter was fine)


Driving habits, and people driving alone in their SUVs and giant pickup-trucks use a hell of a lot more fuel than my 350 lb wife.
