    I was just wondering because, I see post like, "I weighed my car the other day, and it weighs 2456lbs with me plus the DOHC motor in it" I was thinking you'll go to weigh stations for trucks, and if you'll do, how in the hell do the people at the stations have time for some kid who is just curious about the weight of his Civic? Most likely, they would tell you to get that piece of sh*t out of hear. Pease tell me because I smell Bull sh*t.

    Luckily there's a usually unmanned weigh station about halfway between the small town where I live and the less-small town where I work. The scale is left on, but there's usually only a person manning it an hour or two a week :p

    Any weigh station has a scale you can see through the window. They are randomly opened and closed(in WA), so that truckers do not know when they will be weighed or not. Weigh your front axle, then your rear, and add the two together. Unless you have a friend to read inside the window for you, the weight w/driver could be tough.

    LMMFAO! Just weigh the car, then add your weight to it. It's not like you get lighter when you sit in your car.
