Hey I was going to mention that to you privately, but for some reason, my scale read them as 61 pounds each and for some reason FedEx claims they were 70.

Re: MPG Change When Switching To SRT Reps

MPG diff? LMAO think of it this way, do you refuse to carry passengers because they lower your MPG? the reps would be like driving with a 13yr old girl in the car.
