Fuel Saving Tip: Car Weight and Your Michigan Driving

January 22, 2018



Weight is the enemy of fuel economy. Everyone from Sterling Heights knows this makes sense.

Some of us in the Sterling Heights area carry a bunch of unnecessary weight, and I'm not talkin' what you see in the mirror.

Guys: sports equipment and tools. Ladies: well, just take a look around the passenger compartment and trunk. I think my car has about 45 pounds of french fries on the floor.

All that extra weight wastes gas as you drive between here and there, and everywhere else.

Lose the junk and save some money.

...And you really only need one of those spare tires.
