drafting semi's

okay, first off I know it is dangerous...

I recently discovered that you can be 50 to 100 ft back and still see a benefit?

I heard mythbusters found a pretty significant increase all the way back to 100ft?
Or did i hear wrong?

I am pretty confident that i can still be safe at 50-100 ft back, and was wondering if anyone with scangauges have done any informal tests with this?

In the past I've drafted within 10-15 ft off semi's with little problem.
However, i dont drive with that kind of risk level anymore...

but 100 ft is quite safe in my opinion
