Since we had the Gen-III Prius as a blockage-ratio calibration model, there's a reasonable probability that Spirit would have measured Cd 0.1819 for the same configuration at the A2 Wind Tunnel. Lower with the stinger.
Hence, the 39.9-mpg @ 65 mph, and 128 mph according to the race team computer at Bonneville.
It also addresses BamZipPow's trailer mpgs.
