Just took my engine out, and WOW, it handles like a totally different car! The mileage also improved a TON!

Every little bit counts. But remember, weight reduction starts at home ;)

Lol but really, removing rotational mass is a huge thing too.

But thanks for sharing the weights of the easily removable parts !!
Heh, reminds me of a guy I knew who owned a small race team and raced his own car sometimes. He was very proud of shaving 20lbs. off the weight of his car before a big race, but then realized he had gained 20 lbs. since the previous race.

I'm curious as to what the wheels weigh. From tirerack it looks like the all season Continentals are 26 lbs each

Engine cover 3 lbs

Stock Tire 26 lbs/each

Still working on the stock wheel weight and then my next project for fun is going to be taking out the rear seats and see what they weigh!

Anyone know what the correct curb weight of the car? Google says 3681, Ford site says a standard Fusion is 3472, Hybrid 3668, and the Energi which is 3986, and then another site SAE International said 3982.

It can vary greatly, i remember reading something that the base fusion sport was almost 3900 lbs and a fully loaded fushion sport can be over 4200lbs.

I have yet to weigh the muffler since I removed it but it's at least 30+.
