I'd be real interested in seeing true a-b-a testing for this mod since so many guys do it (if it's even possible to measure). I'm all about aero mods, but this one has has always had me skeptical.

I doubt that the aero benefit and the weight saving combined is even measureable in real world driving conditions, since the arm is mounted vertically and the motor/arm assembly is relatively light. Seems like the savings would be measured in hundredths of a mpg, I don't even know how it would be possible to realistically measure it.

Somebody prove me wrong, cause I'm interested.

Then again, if you sold the wiper motor/arm assembly, you'd have enough gas money to drive that Insight across the country for free!
