Do you think people care? Drive on the highway and tell me no one is drafting a semi In any case, that wasn't the point I've seen people try and claim the opposite of established aero. The claim: truck drivers have some sort of malfunctioning ESP making them think they're pulling more load from a mysterous tailgating car

And I doubt that one passenger car drafting would significantly affect the huge truck's FE.
Likely true - but that doesn't change that I laugh at the conjecture I, for one, love speculation - just not about well established phenomena.
Cars have not created a new problem. They merely made more urgent the necessity to solve existing ones.
