Thanks for the tips. I am new to hypermiling so the numbers posted are a little shocking. Having bought a scangauge I can start measuring my progress. my truck (2000 dakota 4 door 2wd w/3.9lv6) is an automatic but I have done some neutral coasting but not full eoc. I built a mockup bed fairing with the leading edge 10" higher than the bed edge. This is as high as I can go and still see out the back. I will add a fairing to the cab trailing edge and I figure I will get 90% of the gain and still have good rear visibility. I have not decided how to proceed beyond that on the aero front. The motor is going to need some work so I am outlining those steps in my head too.
