I spent most of the day writing about what I consider to be the seminal aero cars of the last 100 years (but excluding some that are already being used as numerous examples elsewhere in the book).
This setup was good for just over 44MPG at 70 mph for over 800 miles in ideal 70 degree conditions (still had to run AC because of all the glass a Prius has...).

Just a side note, the friends E150 is a full size van, not a truck. Think church van, but the 10 passenger size.
