Before making skirts, build your own temporary version and do some A-B-A testing. If you can demonsrate the benefit of wheel well skirts on your car, the incentive is that much stronger. The effect of skirts MIGHT be large enough for the throttle stop technique. Gove it a try.
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.
