    Our van has removable seats. When it's just my sister and I along with my two boys, we take out the rear seats. You can tell the rear is a little lighter.

    I also heard but don't know how accurate it is but you're not suppose to fill up when the tanker is filling the gasoline reservoir b/c it churns the bottom "gunk" and you'll pump that into your vehicle.

    More here too:



    http://cars.about.com/od/helpforcarb...fuelsave.htm1.

    Slow down

    One of the best ways to save gas is to simply reduce your speed. ....



    2. Check your tire pressure....Use the inflation pressures shown in

    the owner's manual or on the data plate in the driver's door jamb.



    3. Check your air filter

    A dirty air filter restricts the flow of air into the engine, which

    harms performance and economy.



    4. Accelerate with care...Jack-rabbit starts are an obvious

    fuel-waster ... Stick-shifters should shift early to keep the revs

    down, but don't lug the engine -- downshift if you need to accelerate.

    Keep an eye well down the road for potential slowdowns. If you

    accelerate to speed then have to brake right away, that's wasted fuel.



    5. Hang with the trucks [and use cruise control]

    Ever notice how, in bad traffic jams, cars seem to constantly speed up

    and slow down, while trucks tend to roll along at the same leisurely

    pace? A constant speed keeps shifting to a minimum -- important to

    those who have to wrangle with those ten-speed truck transmissions --

    but it also aids economy, as it takes much more fuel to get a vehicle

    moving than it does to keep it moving. Rolling with the big rigs saves

    fuel (and aggravation).



    7. Back off the bling

    New wheels and tires may look cool, and they can certainly improve

    handling. But if they are wider than the stock tires, chances are

    they'll create more rolling resistance and decrease fuel economy. ...



    8. Clean out your car.... can be tossed out ...an extra 40 or 50 lbs.

    of stuff, and the more weight your car has to lug around, the more

    fuel it burns.



    9. Downsize



    10. Don't drive

    ===================

    If you really want to read up, google "top 10 gas saving tips" and see

    several websites with similar lists; some have a new thing or two.

    I understand that is true, from several people I know that work on

    vehicles. Usually the filter will handle this now, though.

    The gas thing you just mentioned is not true at all.

    <font size="4" color="blue" face="Arial">14.0pt;font-family:Arial;color:blue;font-weight:bold;">My
    experience with this is absoulutly correct. We were at a baseball tournament and
    we needed gas so we stopped even though the tanker was filling up the gas
    station and we didn’t make it out of the parking lot. It plugged up my fuel
    pump and we were 5 hours from home and had to be towed and the pump was 8
    hundred dollars and labor was free as my husband did it but very expensive
    lesson on my part.

    Well if it is not true then why did the gas station pay for a new fuel pump.

    The mechanic had to diagnose it that that is why my fuel pump went out. So

    I think there are a couple that are misguided.
