Both my Civic HX and Dad's Focus XFE came with spoilers and each was specifically designed to get better fuel economy than their respective mere mortal counterparts, but neither of us believed the spoiler did anything but look nice.

Are you familiar with the Template?



The black outline shows the ideal taper for aerodynamics. That car does not have a spoiler, but your would be far under the line, so the air goes right over it. Has paint worn off elsewhere? I would not expect air at freeway speeds to be able to do that, although enough dust in the air could.

I forgot what else I was going to add; all of this took too long!

Welcome to the site, though! I hope that you enjoy yourself here!
