If you read our Seven Ways To Save On Gas list, you know that we're big proponents of the "don't carry so much crap" school of fuel savings. A lot of people ditch the spare tire for a can of Fix-a-Flat. Merely cleaning out the 60 pounds of books and magazines from the trunk of your car might help. And what was the reason you were carrying around a chainsaw? Maybe we don't want to know. If your friends don't split the cost of gas with you (and children never do), maybe you can ditch them on the side of the road, too. Then you wouldn't need a backseat!

What would you part with to save fuel? What have you parted with to save on fuel? Conversely, what would you never hit the road without? Be creative, maybe there's something we've all been driving around with we don't need.
