    Helping my friend get a truck onto a swivel trailer and got sliced open. Ever since I got it cut I have gained close to 1 MPG better during this fuel tank. It hurts like hell to bend it so I scooted my chair all the way back.

    My theory is because I am further back my foot cant get into the pedal as much. So whoever out there wants better MPG...cut your right leg open and get stitches or staples. It will hurt to much to bend and move it and you'll stay out of the gas pedal.

    If you havent realized I am being kind of a :jerkoff: but I am bored and wanted to have some fun :D. Also I really have gained 1 MPG.

    Well I did not want to until I could not keep up with bandages to keep it from bleeding. Also $25 bucks to get it fixed, what do I care.
