When you drive your car along the road, you are pushing the air out of the way and as most vehicles are not well streamlined, that takes a good deal of energy. Is there anything that can be done to improve the situation (other than slowing down a bit and driving gently)? Well, while many drivers won't want to 'spoil' the lines of their vehicle, there are a couple of improvements which could be used if you wanted to. The first comprises of a few very simple pieces of metal which can be stuck to the vehicle. These are called 'Fuel Savers':
On offer from this web site where they offer these small aluminum fins which mount on top of the trailing edge of the bodywork of a vehicle. The devices are reckoned to save some 10% to 12% on fuel consumption, they can be home-made, and nine per vehicle is the recommended number.
