#1 Check Your Trunk: GM and Others Canning Spare Tires…to Meet Gov’t Fuel Economy Target11-11-2011, 01:14 PM
Because the U.S. government is seeking more “aggressive fuel economy targets,” and because motorists are increasingly concerned about gas prices, some car manufactures, chief among them General Motors, think they’ve found the answer: replace spare tires with inflator kits.
You read that right. Here’s the thinking: if manufacturers remove the spare tire and its tools, the car will be 25 pounds lighter and therefore more fuel-efficient.

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

The 2012 Fiat 500 has an inflator kit. The spare tire and tools are extra.

'Course if you buy a Chevy Volt, a fire extinguisher and hazmat suit might be appropriate.
