Default Where can I get my Bonne weighed? (Results in!!!)

I am curious to what my car weighs. I've heard anything from 3450-3800lbs curb weight. Is there anywhere I can take my car to get it weighed without being hit up 40 bucks? Closest place wants 40 bucks to weigh my car. Can I take my car to a scrap place and have them weigh it? Thx.

(Of course it will be weighed with the spare tire and jack in the trunk, and nothing will be removed.)

Yes, a scrap yard is your best option. The ones near me weigh cars and contents to the nearest 20 lbs. Costs $8 for them to weigh it.

Sand and gravel places.. scrap. Anywhere with big trucks will frequently have a scale.

Any grain bin operations nearby? They've got scales.

Truck stops normally have a scale too. Usually about 8 bucks.

Alrighty got it. This is the car with everything out of the trunk, jack and spare are present.

Pictures show weight slip and how much gas was in it at the time. 3536lbs, she rounded it off to 3540. Only cost me 5 bucks.
