Thanks. I haven't really done any scientific fuel economy testing yet. So far it feels like about a 0.5 - 1 mpg difference just based on my average tank ranges. I am guessing about a 3-5% improvement which is in the ballpark of reasonable.

just noticed this thread also. great job on construction and looks.
this would look good on my 93 except:
i don't do much highway driving any more,
my tank is in the bed towards the cab,
the finish would have to not look so good like yours does. my truck is kind of rough looking.

I pointed out in another aerocap thread that, once you have the CNC framework, there are a variety of options to finish it. Would birchbark fit in?

it's not quite that rough. kind of dull, scratches and dents. not too bad but not too good.
