What would grease help? It would make the tubing come off faster

Then you get a rattle as the pan hits the rim.

Perhaps grease could put a stop to the rattling.

I'm not concerned about rattling, as the edge of the pans are drawn against the wheel pretty tightly. I personally decided to use the tubing to keep the pans from chaffing my alloy wheels. I have several hundred miles on them now, and have not had any problem with the tubing coming undone...
...keeping my fingers crossed.

How much of a mileage improvement have you noticed since installing the wheel covers? Is it measurable (with the scangauge of course)?

I'll have to do some ABA testing to verify any change. There's just too much variation in my tank-to tank fills.

My first car was a 1985 Tempo coupe. Her name was Cybil, as in Cybil Shepherd. A 1988 Honda Accord hatchback I drove was named Goldie (Hawn). So when I started driving the Vibe, I was wondering what her name was. One day on the way to work I was idly thinking about EOCing, momentum, and Sir Isaac Newton. Which made me think of Olivia Newton-John. You know, in Grease, with the black leather pants. (dang this ADD) And then it hit me, yeah-that's it, her name's Olivia.
