Thank you for making my point this is exactly why I am looking to get a model tested
And this is the response from Darko
"David,

Your truck is too big for the Darko Tech tunnel.

After your call I talked with Gary at Aerodyn and A2. The A2 tunnel can accommodate your size but the weight is an issue. Call A2 for possibilities.

Good luck with the project.

Aerohead this 27% is not a 1 best tank# if i go that route. ..
22.63 Best naked tank. Vs
27.33mpg best with cap =20.77% improvement ,still 41.54%
The 27% is based on thousands of real world miles including loaded excding10,000lbs at 62.5 ,3-4shift point, to75mph
I adjusted my "TV"cable to move my shift point downto 50mph Next trip to the VA 200mi ill run 55 and report
I apologize for not following through,checking Hucho's Diesel vs Gasoline relationship / delta-CdA.Let me look into that.
I think we have 3-other caps similar to yours. Two have been CFD analyzed,and road tested.Let me try and dig out that data.
I'm limiting my trips to town,trying to be ready for Darko.It may be Saturday before I'm online again.
Enjoy that 27%.That's very sweet!
