    I didn't make my point clearly...it isn't the single item it is the total weight. My fat butt plus equipment does make a difference.

    I'd challange you to add 20lbs to your truck, and demonstrate a real world mpg documented difference, this would be interesting, and I think you'll find your self hard pressed to find a corelation.

    Weight. Every pound I carry in my car is fewer miles per gallon. That is the same reason I don't cary many things I would like to carry. That is also the same reason I don't drive a four-wheel drive truck/SUV/Jeep.

    I drive a 27-30 mpg paid for 2004 car for the 90-minute commute instead. No it is not a BOV but living in suburbia I can't afford one nor have a place for one anyway. Instead I keep spare emergency belts, oil, 12v microcompressor, jump battery, folding t-bar, collapsible emergency gas can, tools, radio and BOB in the trunk. I figure that weight is bad enough but MUCH more likely to be useful than a breacher tool.

    Your mileage (literally) may vary but for me the weight is the reason I don't carry more in the car. Then again I am preparing for specific situations not ANYTHING survivalist missions where I instantly become a patriot guerrilla fighter. Not mocking those who are just pointing it out.

    I grant you this is a great tool but the 9 lbs. makes it a garage tool not something I can put in my car or consider for the Bug-out-bag. Thanks for sharing it though.
