So, update on the wheel skirt. Failure. Well, sort of.

The good news: The brackets held perfectly! Really impressed with that; all credit to MetroMPG (I think he was the first?) for the concept!

Bad news: I could't seem to get the skirt far enough away from the wheel to avoid rubbing, so my car sounded like a machine gun every time the skirt rubbed against one of the zip ties from my wheel covers.

Skirt is off for now. Trying to figure out how to rectify that before remounting for another test.

Tank is still at just over 45 mpg per Torque app monitoring. Fuel gauge is saying closer to 50, but that's generally optimistic.
