You hit a deer at night, hood flies up and completely covers the windshield, headlights gone, and your first thought is "Damn, first tailwind in over a month, weather report is for tailwind on the return, AND NOW MY ONE CHANCE FOR A GOOD FILL IN WINTER IS GONE!". All before the truck comes to a stop.
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.
