Wait, does that mean that your aerodynamics could effect the vehicle in front of you, and the wake of the lead vehicle could pull you along helping your fuel economy? Oye, my head hurts. Is there any research on this, it would be interesting to set up a wind tunnel test using various size vehicles, ie..... semi shape, car shape, truck, bus, another car, all in a line and see how the air flows.
