View Full Version : Does 600lbs of Charcoal Fit in a Civic??

Apparently it does. I had been waiting for the HD deal to come out to see where I was going to buy my charcoal this week. After seeing it wasn't better than Walmart I went to my local store down the street. I was there last night an they still had plenty so I wasn't worried they would run out.

Thought I was only going to get 10 packs as I wasn't sure how much would fit in my Civic. I'm obviously not good at estimating :becky:.

I started with 11bags.

Dropped the backseat and 2 of the 11 went there. So plenty of room left.

Went back in and grabbed 9 more to make an even 20 packs.

Didn't even have to put any in the front passenger seat.

When I first started loading the 11 an employee walked buy and said "that is a great price". I said "It definitely is" and chatted with him for a bit about bbq. Then as I was checking out with my 2nd load the guy checking out in front of me said "You must grill/bbq out a lot. That will last you a while." I told him "It hopefully should, along with the 11 packs already in my car." Then I got a few funny looks as I took the pictures of the charcoal loading into my car :grin:.

Dang. The back seat in my Echo doesn't drop down. It DOES have a 1 1/2 body trunk though...

Now granted I had to call a tow truck to tow my civic and all the charcoal home since it wasn't happy being that full :crazy:.

Nice deal!
For about 15minutes I couldn't figure out how you counted to 600lbs. I was sure you'd made a mistake. Then I took off my shoes and was able to add it up right.

I have hauled 1500 lbs of retaining wall block in my '98 Honda Civic, so anything is possible.

You could probably hold 2000 lbs if you took it all out of the bag. :razz:

So you are back to paying more than pre sale price after the tow bill right.:tsk:

Did all that charcoal come with a free set of shocks? That's funny. We have a simular picture of our civic, only loaded with diapers. :-D

I destroyed two transmissions in a Voyageur doing that kind of thing. Now I drive a big Toyota truck, so it's no longer a concern.

I have put 12 kayaks on the roof of an Accord, though!

My buddy Arleigh had a smartcar back when we were working out a lot. He was going about 240, I was more around 250, so that would put you at 490 pounds in the front seat. We even packed his wife in there, she goes around 10, so we made 600 pounds in a SmartCar and it still went up hills fine.

I think $700 is only half a bag at Whole Foods. :crazy: This was Costco. We forgot what car we took, or we never would've picked up the package of paper towel and the 2 bags of birdseed at HD. :doh:

Fantastic! I love the charcoal sale pr0n, but extra credit goes to the Civic owners who pack their cars to the gills for their habit.

Great pics and a lot fun stalking up on fuel for the summer! Last winter I talked to the manager of our local Menards and he gave me a good price on a whole pallet of Royal Oak.

Same thing I was thinking....and what's wrong with stockpiling at least another 10 bags on the roof?

idk what's worse, not finishing the job or us looking for more and more empty spaces that fuel can fit....

just thought of another space, what about the space between the backseat and the window? Could've crammed at least 3 more dbls there.....:tsk:

Mark
05-25-2012, 02:36 PM
And why not just grab a bunch of plastic bags as you go through the check out so you can open up one bag (maybe more) , redistribute it into smaller bags and stash them wherever: under the front seats, glove box, etc.
