Different scales read slightly different, and placement on the scale makes a difference too.

Most the time when I scale my front, rear, and both axles the front+rear is a different number than the entire vehicle.

Thanks. Same scale at the local Pilot. Can't guarantee I was set the same place each time though.

Having scaled trucks hundreds of times just make sure you are centered on the scale . Accurate within a 100 lbs or they will pay the over weight ticket !:D
