Share Article

Author Robert Parker has discovered a brand new incentive for Americans vowing to lose weight. In his e-book "57 Ways to Save Money on the High Cost of Fuel in Your Car or Truck," Parker shows that overweight drivers who slim down can save money on gasoline.

An overweight family could spend an additional $100, $200 or even $400 per year for driving exactly the same miles as the thin family in the next lane.

Inspired by the upcoming concurrence of Healthy Weight Week and National Creative Frugality Week (January 21st through 27th) author Robert Parker discovers a brand new incentive for Americans vowing to lose weight.

Mr. Parker, the creator of SaveFuelMoneyNow.com, says, "Americans can combine the two most popular New Year's resolutions, health goals and financial goals, into one motivating objective. Simple math proves that overweight drivers (and their families) who slim down will save money on gasoline too!"

After investigating new policies designed to penalize overweight passengers for exacerbating airline’s rising fuel costs, Robert grew curious about the effect that overweight drivers have on gasoline in their cars and trucks.

"Some Americans are paying dearly at the pump for being overweight," he writes in tip number 42 of his book: "57 Ways to Save Money on the High Cost of Fuel in Your Car or Truck." "They may be losing 10% of every gallon of gas they buy." Robert continues, "An overweight family could spend an additional $100, $200 or even $400 per year for driving exactly the same miles as the thin family in the next lane."

In his popular e-book, "57 Ways to Save Money on the High Cost of Fuel in Your Car or Truck," Robert outlines how changing a few simple habits, or creating new ones, will help people save money on the rising cost of gas. His readers learn dozens of ways to keep more money in the bank rather than put it in their tanks.

Mr. Parker has updated his online book to draw attention to the added cost of driving around with the extra poundage that many Americans possess. Tip number 42 continues to assert that clearing out the unnecessary stuff in your car is a sure way to save money on gasoline. But in addition to the tendency for people to accumulate "junk in their trunks," he now highlights a previously overlooked source of excess weight in cars: drivers and passengers.

Robert Parker has spent twenty years as a New York City-based consultant in the financial services business sector. His clients have included Morgan Stanley, ADP, Credit Suisse and McKinsey & Co. He has authored a set of reports to help people with resume writing and job interviewing skills. His plans for 2007 include a guide to energy efficiency at home and a local television show based on saving money by making intelligent choices.
