I can remember being picked up and tossed off to the side by by the bow wave around those flat front semis when the wind was right. I also remember that Greyhound busses had a very light bow wave. This was back in my hitchhiking days (early 70's).
06 Canyon: 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.

22 Maverick: Summer 2022 burned 62.74 gallons in 3145.1 miles for 50.1 MPG.
