    Bill Rusk does. He knows how much the air weighs inside the tubing, at different temps

    I tend to use the following math to figure it out. Original part weight - new part price/100.00 dollars = saved weight. Bill has a lot of the weights in his post, if you do a search with part name and weight you can usually find a few posts that have the info. Good reading for the rainy days.
