      whoa! gas mileage!

      so most people know i have had a large stereo system in my car for a long while now.. well its been stolen.. roughly 300lbs of junk lifted from my far back end..

      well let me tell you something.. its already saved me $120 roughly in the two weeks its been gone from how much i have to drive for me new job.. i dont know the exact numbers but its taking me ~50% less fuel to drive 41 miles as it did before.. makes me wonder wtf i was thinking...sure i lost about $2500 in junk but thats over now.. they obviously needed it more than i did.. i need the gas mileage and im getting that

      car actually became a little quicker but its still an awkward turd..

      not sure what to think here... leave it light, and lower it with better tires.

      lol, how did they steal everything? May be missing a window or two as well, which is even less weight

      2 inches :/ that's crazy. I hate the feeling of having just had my stuff stolen. At least you found a bright side to the situation.
