Reduce Weight - Remove the Spare Tyre

Some seem to think that it's a good idea to realise minor fuel efficiency savings by removing the spare tyre from their car. 

It's true that by removing the weight, your vehicle will be a little more fuel-efficient as a result. The trade-off, though, is that you might well find yourself stuck in a dangerous situation for longer than is necessary as a result. No-one wants to change a flat on the side of the motorway, but it's still far better than having to wait on the hard shoulder because you discarded your spare to save a few pence.
