Wow, my 2000 would weigh in close to Rogue'* then...hmm...I wonder what my '93 weighs. No doubt substantially less, and I can definitely tell the difference.

I'll make a table full of weights, PM me the results guys, it'd be nice to see some real world weights. Most of the weights at Byron were 1/8th tank or less.

You'd have to add that wing to the front hood for it to work...

A gallon of water weighs 8 lbs, so you're probably close.

From faqs.org:

Quote:
Depends on the API gravity of the gasoline, which varies by grade and refinery. Usually, regular unleaded gasoline has a gravity of around 58 and a weight per gallon of 6.216 pounds per gallon. Premium gasoline may have a gravity of 54, or 6.350 pounds per gallon.
The above is around 72*F.

Thanks, I think her @$$ is lookning pretty good, gotta feel how tight she is in the inside though

Seriously at 4140 I must be the heaviest in the club, Another #1 for me But I'm at 210, so my 01 is rolling at 3930. I also had the low fuel light on so probably only 2-3 gallons of gas. I might need a light weight to drive me into the 13'*
