I'm working on re-doing the design for my grill block; I think I can do better. My stock front end is probably worse than the blackfly's, so I should see a better gain if I do it right.
The skirts are something that should come with the car, for almost every car. We should to an official count of all the wheel skirts in the Ecomodder fleet that you and SVOboy have initiated - it probably accounts for a decent reduction in fuel usage overall!
