Every additional pound of weight in your car will require more energy from your car’s engine. That means more fuel being used. Take a look in your trunk and back seat and remove anything that should not be there, unless it is absolutely necessary.
On average, there is a 2% fuel economy savings for every 100 pounds of extra weight.
DON’T OVERLOAD YOU VEHICLE
Another thing to consider is ski racks, kayak racks, etc. These not only add weight to the car, but will also increase wind resistance, causing more fuel to be used.
