Welcome to the site! You have an impressive start!

Racing and ecomodding both deal heavily with aerodynamics and minimizing weight. Of course, you coast longer with more weight, but you will burn more fuel accelerating. I believe you would almost always improve fuel economy by trimming weight.

You became ASE certified at eighteen? Well done!
