Man vs Machine in Fuel Burning

“A tool is but the extension of a man’s hand, and a machine is but a complex tool.”
–Henry Ward Beecher
The fuel economy of the human body is remarkable. A 165-pound marathon runner burns about 2,800 calories on the 26-mile course. If the human body could run on gasoline instead of food, the same runner could complete a marathon in less that a twelfth of a gallon of gasoline (which is about 31,000 calories). In other words, the human body gets about 300 miles to the gallon! If only our cars could be so efficient…
Hat Creek Carriers may not get the same numbers as your body when it comes to fuel economy, but if you’re looking for dependable service, give us a call.
And you can be sure that, with the rising prices of gas, we are looking forward to the day when a car runs on bananas.
