Incidentally, the two values are pretty similar for the Insight. GVWR makes sense. For designs for my own use, I'll use the greatest load I expect to see, whether that's above the GVWR or not.

BZP, that's an interesting way to use the bottom of the template. Just make sure that people don't align the template like that and think they can draw inferences about the top of the car.

We should attach instructions to the template, because it's not intuitive how it should be used.
