Has someone tried base bleed?

Hey guys,

There are a number of intriguing papers about the "base bleed" mod to increase fuel efficiency like :

2012, Optimum Way to Increase the Fuel Efficiency of the Car Using Base Bleed,

2018, Reduction of Aerodynamic Drag Force for Reducing Fuel Consumption in Road Vehicle using Basebleed

2016, DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF CONVERGENT BASE BLEED IN AUTOMOTIVE STRUCTURE

Ever heard of this mod? Anybody did something like that?

I want to install a belly pan on my 99 Acura EL (same as Civic Ex sedan in US) and should this mod be worth, it would have to be installed before the undertray.

Facts and opinions will all be welcomed.

Acel
