truth about AVEO5

I love this car, but it is SERIOUSLY aerodynamically challenged!!! I bought this 2009 AVEO 5 hatchback with 17k miles about 5 months ago. It has a 5 speed manual transmission, cruise control, and air conditioning. Of all the different driving techniques I've tried, none is as near a significant factor as the difference between cruising at 55mph vs. 75 mph. It's literally the difference between 31 mpg and 38 mpg.

the engine doesn't need the mods on this car, the powertrain engineers did just fine. it's the aerodynamics that are killing it . . . i need a boat tail. anyone want to start a company with me that makes boat tails for aveos and sonics?
