Thanks, I don't know either but extrapolating from the Coventry data I am hoping for 1 or 2 mpg. I'm not sure if having a longer box and therefore larger vortex/phantom boattail is counter productive, but it's worth finding out.

If I exceed 44mpg in combined driving i'll say it's from the box. Not patient enough to test it right now :P

And you are in Michigan ?

If so the cops are going to leave you alone. Not worth the out of state ticket hassle/ your laws might be different etc.
Yep. I've gotten pulled over twice here, once in the Rabbit and once in the Probe. I've never gotten a ticket. I'm glad the officer didn't spot the lack of a driver side window, as that is illegal here.
