So I was thinking.

Mileage and effiency are a big selling point for todays vehicles. There is a decent selection of hybrids with electric cars just over the smoggy horizon. I wonder who will be the first fat person to be told that their electric car isn't getting the mileage as advertised because the driver is overweight. Will the auto makers factor in the worst case scenerio when it comes to advertising? Do they purposely make the cars smaller for this reason? Will the fat person take their car in multiple times for testing only to have it returned with helium balloons hidden about the car?

One option is to make the electric cars just wide enough so that they do not fit through a standard McDonald's, Burger King, or Wendy's drive through.
