    I think rolling resistance matters much more. I say this, because the lightest tires don't always "win" by several mpg even, in Tirerack's mpg evals.

    Yep, also have orange and lime (in the motorhome shadow - kinda stunts it's growth). The lemon tree was supposed to be a dwarf, it's like 12 feet tall...lol.

    It's more the unsprung weight that I see resulting improvements in, specifically with responsiveness. Don't think I see any MPG improvements. Best MPG gains are when I drive the CX-5 versus my wife, she is hammer down!

    Part of my young life was spent with guava, grapefruit, lemon, orange, etc. trees in the yard. Was nice.
