Help with quick aero mod for vacation

I am going to be driving to Las vegas from SLC next week and I was wanting to do a quick aero mod to my front bumper. I was wondering if anyone can give me some tips on how and what is the best way of doing this? My first idea was to get some painters tape and tape up my grill and bumper. But I was not sure if that would actually help.

So if anyone can give me some help I would really appreciate it. I leave on Feb. 10 so info sooner would be nice.

Welcome on-board wildfire8.

Look at front grill block and rear wheel skirts in the 65+ Efficiency Mods document linked in the top of each page.

You'll find a lot of cardboard/coroplast versions of them on the site.

Have fun,

Denis.
