Nice job of testing. Looks like the effects of warmer outside temperature and/or oil temperatures warming up are greater than the effect of aero hubcaps.

Some good follow up tests would be the effect of outside temperature and the effect of driving time (warming of engine oil, tranny oil, and differential oil) on mileage.
