Re: Car Weights

Arved stick to photography, you're a little weak in arithmetic... :-)

Try 500,000 lbs divided by 30,000,000 -- that's 1/4 oz per car per year, or an
average of one stick-on weight per car. Which is probably where they came up with
that number in the first place!

At least as long as lead-acid batteries remain popular, I'd say.

It's been pointed out that there are roughly 30 million cars registered in California. Divided by 500,000 lbs of lead, that means the average car looses 60 lbs. of lead each year. Being an average, some more, and some less. It doesn't seem like you have to buy lead at all. Just wander down the streets, and you're bound to find plenty.

At least in California.
