Welcome to ecomodder. This is a wonderful site.
I would like to see a reliable, accurate test of FE on the removal of the windshield wipers on a Metro/Swift hatchback.
I removed mine, and it feels to be one of the best mods I have done. I have a partial grill block, rear wheel skirts, and front air dam. The best mod so far is the fuel injector cut off.
I use rainex on the windshield, and watching rain drops slide up the windscreen with the wipers on, and then with the wipers removed is educational. I have almost 6 inches of turbulence on the lower windshield with the wipers installed, and none with them removed.
