Your car has about 20 gallons full of gas. That is 124 lbs. between empty and full tanks.
You are a good driver to notice that relatively small change in weight. I can notice the difference at the track between having a passenger in the car which is a little more weight than that, but have not heard others talk too much on this.
I am surprised how off Porsche is with the stated weights in the owners manuals and spec books compared to when you actually weigh your car. Porsche is generally dead nuts about other specs like hp and torque figures posted.
Did they stuff lead weights into the cars headed over to America?
