1986 Saab 900 with SPG aero package lowers CD down to .38 from .42

Running a grill block, a large flat skid plate (for rocks and smooth air) and a large whale tail( it changes rear angle from 25 degrees to 16 degrees)
By itself,the grille block would not be able to effect mpg by more than 3%.If your mileage is off by a larger margin,we need to look elsewhere for the culprit.
