Fuel Saving Tip: Car Weight And Your Iowa Driving

Weight is the enemy of fuel economy. Everyone from here to West Des Moines knows this makes sense.

Some of us in the West Des Moines 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 forty-five pounds of French fries on the floor.

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

Lose the junk and save some money.

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