How much does the average insight driver weigh, when this type of weight savings is calculated and catalogued?

I am generally curious, as I see people apparently removed rear wiper motors etc....

Weight does almost nothing for MPG, but hey, the engine now has to work a little less to even idle! Every little bit counts. Good find!

I've always heard that every pound of rotational mass saved equals eight pounds of stationary mass, IIRC. So no this won't add power or mpg but every little bit surely helps.

Is there an issue with the plastic INA pulley becoming too brittle "before it's time".

I'll let you know when it fails, though, that can be 10-20 years from now. My Turbo Dodge uses a plastic pulley for its timing belt tensioner and I have never hard of anyone having issue with the pulley.

Neato... people here are quite creative.
Not me, I just went to Rockauto to find idle pulley replacement then came upon it.
