Weight
The more your vehicle weighs, the more force (gas) it takes to accelerate.
Different Types of Weight
Pint-sized vehicles barely affect the vehicle's fuel economy.
Meanwhile, SUVs and trucks that weigh more than 2 tons have a hard time moving. This means that more gas is used and the vehicle's fuel economy is affected even more
Example
If a car has a four-speed transmission, its engine must turn faster than a car with a five-speed to produce the same speed.
