The mythbusters have shown you can dimple the car like a golf ball for about a 12% increase in your MPG without going having to to resort to useless empty extensions of the front or rear of the vehicle. Granted, a dimpled car is not for everyone. But it does not require restriping every parking lot to accomodate 6ft aerodynamic extensions either.
