I drafted behind a Greyhound bus on a motorcycle once. The turbulence was like getting between two guys boxing each other wearing pillows for gloves. It was on one of those California 12 lane freeways with heavy traffic.

I did not save any gas, and got beat up in the process.
The vacuum gauge plus wheel covers helped increase summer 2015 mileage to 38.5 MPG, while summer 2016 mileage was 38.6 MPG without the wheel covers. Drove 33,021 miles 2016-2018 at 35.00 MPG.
