Have you ever wanted to know what your Fit weighs?

Here is a little tip. In most states the truck scales you see run by the DOT are left on even when they are closed. There is a pole with several digital read outs mounted on the driver's side of the scales so the driver can see what each axle weighs. As you drive on to the scales you can see several segments of concrete with horizontal lines between them. You can drive your car on to one segment for total weight or you can stop with the front wheels on one segment and the rear wheels on a different segment. Your weight will now be displayed on the digital readout on the pole. I have weighed my Colorado and also my Colorado towing my 4 wheel trailer with my John Deere on it. I just last Saturday night ran my Blazer over one on the Interstate in Indiana. 4780 pounds with full tanks, me inside and a bunch of stuff I was hauling home from a motorhome work rally in Eastern Tennessee.

So next time you see a closed scale pull on in and see if your state leaves the scales on all the time. Most do.

You can weigh it at some drag strips that have a weigh scale at them also. Rear seats removed, lighter battery, spare tire and jack removed. Lighter wheels/tires!

Is that with you inside or not? Only ask because in stock form mine was 1080kg (2376lbs). Mine was reweighed when I registered it as a 2 seater, but I never really saw the new weight, but my overall GVW was dropped like 180kg or something on the title and that was with the cage installed, so maybe the car itself is like 1020kg (2244lbs).

Now that I think about it, that must be with you out of the car. :)
