There are some things that are not worth a extra mile or 2 per gallon. And doing that to your car is one of them.

What an idiot. I seriously doubt any actual coefficient drag improvement. It isn't even smooth. Nor has anything been done to the front which is a critical area to mod for any improvement.....And the quoted....."have been calculated at 64 miles per gallon" is a pile of horse squat. But I'm sure if I got out a case of red duct tape and a couple cardboard refrigerator boxes, and did that to my GXP, the local paper would be happy to come take pics and print whatever I say. I wonder if these plans were drawn up at Will'* kitchen table. Next to the hypobaric dishwasher used for many scientific "proofs" we endured

"Upon briging it out of the dishwasher, we hit it with the infrared spectrometer, and can safely discern........ It'* time to replace the door seal........ Where did all these bubbles come from...."

"And the chips have been consumed. Now, time to insert the gastrometer. We're going In! " (We won't discuss why the term"where no man has gone before" isn't appropriate)
