Has anybody put a snorkel on? Does it effect your MPG?

You may want to ask a fella by the name of "chadwick", he can answer alot of questions on snorkles. Pros and cons.

It doesn't really improve your MPG's, it's mainly for keeping the intake of air high enough not to suck in water.

What do you need the snorkle for????

chadwick put his on only to impress his girl.

I know, I just couldn't resist. I almost peed my pants when I saw the word "Snorkel" in the title.

Check with chadwick, I don't think he had goggles or swim fins.


I'm soooo sorry chadwick. I promise I will expose my biggest screwup of the year when it happens.

I am having a hard time holding my breath long enough to cross the river where I wheel. I have to cross it 3 times and was just thining it would help. I heard it hurts your gas mileage.
