As I said, pick the trucks that have flaps all the way down. Hardly any rubbish kicks up from under them. And they give a better draft at distance. If you are lucky enough to find one that is not swarmed by truck drafting corvette's, of course

Seriously, I draft most of the time. Up to now I have had about 5 sizeable stone hits on the front window, one left a dent that made repair necessary, but NONE of it happened while drafting...
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

For confirmation go to people just like you.
For education go to people unlike yourself.
