No wonder I often find mentions to both an absolute frontal area and what is usually refered to as "corrected frontal area".

I'd say Ernie knows who he is, what he likes, how to get it, and simply enjoy it. Good living. Would love to see some videos on his process but it seems like he is nearly done with his last car, so... that's that.

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.

does on fuel

It will have to do with Road Load Horsepower, powertrain efficiency, and BSFC of the engine, under whatever conditions of interest are experienced.
