right, my friend told me that if you leave the car at a standstill with only the back windows open for 45 minutes you can increase your MPG by around 5 MPG, is this true?

I hear if you play the spice girl really loud with your windows open, while taking out the rear bench...
It looks really stupid :lol:

I think that right?

Yes it true, I know its sounds unbelievable but its true… ;)


just leave your back windows open for 45 minutes and some tow rag will nick your stereo, CD collection, seats and anything else left in the car thus saving weight so the car will gain more mpg.
Give it a try :) :) :)

A girl asked a guy if he thought she was pretty and he said no. She
asked him if he would want to be with her forever and he said no. She
then asked him if she were to leave would he cry, and once again he
replied with a no. She had heard enough. As she walked away,tears
streaming down her face the boy grabbed her arm and ......said You're not pretty you're... See More
beautiful. I don'twant to be with you forever. I NEED to be with you
forever. And I wouldn't cry if you walked away...I'd die... ♥♥ ~~THE
END~~♥♥.......Isn't that sweet? Tonight at midnight your true love
will realize they like you. Something good will happen to you at
1:00-4:00pm tomorrow, it could be anywhere on IM or email, outside of
school,anywhere! Get ready for the biggest shock of your life. If you
break this chain letter you will be cursed with 10 relationship
problemsforthe next ten years. If you post this to 15 pages in 15
minutes and also open your cars rear windows 45 minutest before you set off you a journey, you're safe and your fuel economy will improve by 5 mpg.

ive never heard such tosh. i thought it was if you drive with no windows, it reduces drag and therefore gives you better economy
