How many miles of annual use over a lifespan of? (Is always the problem). Gains are minimal unless annual miles are high for Interstate use.

I'm willing to bet an aeroshell, side skirts and appropriate front air dam are best as most miles for most people are solo.

Ahead of that is mechanicals. Trailers have a list as do trucks. Then the hitch lash up. That's a couple mpg after vehicles are. perfect. (Next to no one dies it).
