Good screen name . Welcome to the site. I second (third? fourth?) the motion: start tracking your consumption accurately. It's where it all starts.

I removed both seats to give it a good cleaning and while I was at it I was like why not just leave the seat out I'm never gonna carry passengers and If I do the back seat is still there. Doesnt look like it weighs much so I kept it in.

Looks like someone was murdered on the passenger seat too, I was gonna clean it but I like it gone much better

When I run a quick errand it is nice to just open the door and grab my stuff on the floor. But yeah all kinds of room now

Looked like a murder seat

How far away is work?

Making some assumptions: 6 round trips in the Metro for $3 .... @ $3 a gallon @ 45 mpg = roughly 3.75 miles each way.

You should get in on the GS biking "competition":
