As I was responding to a question on weight reduction for better mileage on another automotive board it hit me. One of the previous posters on the thread had posted the comment "Hit the Gym and lose some weight" Well yes that applied to me this year, with a loss of 100 lbs since May and I still have 35-40 to go. It should also apply to our cars. Since most of us are off work today it may be a good idea to walk down to the garage or out parking lot and go through your vehicle or vehicles and pull out all the unnecessary stuff you're been collecting and hauling around. Example do you really need that full gallon of windshield washer fluid in your trunk? You taking a road trip or is it only their for convenience? That bottle weighs seven plus pounds. I'm betting most of you are carting around an extra 20-25lbs of stuff you really don't need in your cars and trucks. It is also winter and getting colder, don't forget about checking those tire pressures. So check those glove boxes, consoles, back seat and the floor, trunk, hatch area, under the floor of your trunk, hatch area and clean the weight out.
