Doesn't how inflated your tires are affect the reported miles you are getting on your car's meter? I think they calculate the mileage based on the revolutions of your tires so that an overinflated tire will turn less times per mile than an underinflated tire. So if your tire is underinflated it is thus revolving more per distance than the computers are programmed to calculate it.

This may all be wrong, though, as I've been up since 8:00 PM yesterday (it's 7:41 AM) studying for a crappy micro exam and my brain is a lil disjointed right now.

Ain't grad school!
