What's driving the average human?



Before you want one, think of the cost of maintenance and the poor yearly total distance

Humm... At a rough guess, I might walk 2000 miles per year (can we include skiing, biking, &c?), but consume maybe 5 gallons of beer per year, so 400 mpg? Definitely hypermiling, anyway :-)

I've also noticed that I get much better mileage from Guiness or other good beers than from mass-market stuff.

An average human that does moderate activity burns 2500 calories per day which is 912,500 calories per year.

22 gallons of beer at 130 calories per serving is 30,507 calories... That just isn't enough...

One keg serves 124 sixteen ounce servings each serving is 173.3 calories. So we need 5265.5 pints rounded up which is 42.5 kegs rounding up.

Okay people so we need to drink 14 beers per day to stay alive.

Although... that means we would only get like 1.36 MPG

Remember, though, that beer (especially Budweiser :-)) is mostly water. Figure about 5% alcohol as an average, and that bumps it up to about 27 mpg of ethanol.
