Yes 100 lbs of weight. Completely different from 100 lbs of rotating mass.

I understand this. I thought you made this thread about dropping overall weight, not just rotating mass. You very well can't take 100 pounds from the rotating mass and still have 4 wheels and tires to make you roll.

Pretty much the only thing I don't have that adds weight is remote start and a block heater...

all the nice stuff always add weight. Oh well, bought it for great mpg, technology, and comfort. It does all of that already.

The only change I would make is......

A lighter exhaust from Magnaflow (if it would in fact help mpg) and lighter wheels (that actually look good). So many light weight wheels are so ugly.
