Fuel Saving Tips

Loose the spare

My spare tire was stored under the floor of my van years of salt, sand blasting from road dust and water had deteriorated the rim greatly. I found myself hauling a 20lb tire that i could never use. I have roadside assistance with my phone, so i took it out. I know this wont work for everyone in all situations, but if you would "never" put on a spare and just have a tire replaced just remove it and get that free tow with the roadside assist next time.
