Weight

The 6M Camaro SS weighs in at 3,860lbs I believe...is this weight with a driver, full tank of gas, etc? I think I read somewhere, in some magazina that the Camaro will have a 19 gallon (?) gas tank and should be able be able to get close to 500 miles/tank. Does anyone know what the Camaro's weight entitles?

That would be cool, without a 500lb. driver the Camaro would be 3300lbs.

No, I think that's the dry weight - no gas, driver, etc. Definately no driver.

Actually, the number quoted, 3,860 lbs, represent a manual Camaro SS with a full tank of fuel. This weight does not reflect passengers because the weight could vary heavily from one anorexic passenger to four obese passengers. This is otherwise known as the curb weight.

Curb weight is always measured with a car with full tank of gas.
