Can it be lowered? Doing so, even one inch, will somewhat lower your effective frontal area and thus your CdA, total drag area (the mirror delete does that too). But the rear wheel cover is your lowest hanging fruit, I would bet.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
