/ taking back seats out of micra
do you really think this is going to make a difference worth having?
Lol, have you actually tried yet?
Well give it ago then and report back your findings... I suspect it will be easy and make a difference. I imagine it will also make your car much noiser too.
check with your insurer if it counts as modifying the vehicle. could cost you dear of you have an accident.
back in the day they stripped the underseal of mini rally cars to get the weight off!! nuts
To improve efficiency you could also try just driving in a thong thus shedding the excess weight of clothing and possibly a good wax (the car not you) will make it cut through the air like a Knife. Also drive 5ft from the bumper of the car infront to make use of valuable slipstreams. This could however lead to a rather embarassing altercation revolving around road rage due to you only being in a thong and stood next to a mirrorlike Micra.
Changing your driving style will likely make much more sense. Pulling away slowly and smoothly, driving at the optimum speed on the motorway ( about 60 mph probably), not accelerating towards red lights.
Flip them up and have a look, it'll be a few bolts at most, more likely just a pin or a bit if jiggling.
Can't see the point personally!
I disagree. You certainly notice the difference when you have a passenger. There is also quite a lot of people who advocate only ever filling your tank half full for the same reason.
