Kerbweight


The basic empty weight of the car in running order. The kerbweight includes the sparewheel, jack, battery and all necessary fluids plus a tank full of petrol, but not the towbar. Recent changes to European regulations require kerbweight to include 75 kg for the driver and his luggage. Some manufacturers are stating the revised kerbweight in their 2004 brochures.
