      Our car had to have its boots replaced once. After I heard that, I always believed that our car had some Fred Flintstone propulsion method, where the engine operated a set of mechanical feet (which...

      Interesting math. 2 examples

      200hp car gets 50 mpg: 4 hp / mpg
      200hp car gets 10 mpg: 20 hp / mpg

      20 > 4, so the 10mpg car is more efficient!
