      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.
