I was recently watching a show on Toyota and their seemingly never-ending quest to make fuel efficient cars.
Almost immediately afterwards, I watched a show talking about the diet of Americans, and their seemingly never-ending quest to be obese.
And this got me thinking.
If cars are getting more fuel efficient, but people are getting fatter – doesn’t that mean that it takes the same amount of power to move people as it did when people were lighter but cars were less fuel efficient?
In other words, are the benefits of fuel efficient cars being cancelled out by the increasing weight of drivers & passengers?
Maybe I’m wrong – I was shit at school – but if that’s the case, maybe it would be good if Toyota gave a diet plan with every car sold.
Or gave a price discount to anyone who is in the recognised height/weight ratio.
Or encouraged people to walk rather than drive to the post box.
