In the late '90s I lived in Southern California and drove a beater Ford F150 with a rebuilt carbureted 4.9L I-6 engine. I was getting pretty bad fuel economy, around 13-14 MPG on mostly freeway driving. A friend of mine wanted to try a 2-for-1 deal

If I am not mistaken the tires that carry the full weight of the car are overinflated as to support the weigth and to not become unseated. I think the car needs help getting two wheels off the ground but then the balance is matter of practice and ste
