Did you know that for every extra 100 pounds of things in your car, you reduce the fuel efficiency of your automobile by around 2%? While that may not sound like a lot, over time that adds up to a significant amount of gas (and money) wasted hauling around those never-used golf clubs and boxes of office papers. Take the time to clean out the car. You’ll be surprised what’s in there that you don’t need, like snow-removal equipment when it’s hot and sunny outside, or bags of clothing that never quite made it to the donation bin. Lightening the load helps improve efficiency, and it also declutters your car.
