This was my attempt at a aerodynamic truck cap for my dodge. I saw what others were doing on ecomodders.com. work up early this morning to get my cap done. bought some dollar store paint and another gallon of resin. i applied 2 coats of resin and painted all with in 6 hours. Took it for a drive on my normal ride to school and got a avg of 18.7 usually get more like 14-14.9 . o and it is a 06 dodge ram 3500.

Looks great for under 8 hours of work, and a potential 20%-25% increase in mileage is huge!

I plan on making another one something lighter this project was more for me to prove to my self that it would work and do able. i now have a winter to plan this first attempt was a great help i design my next one.

With this cap i got about 3-4 mpg better(hand calculated) on the 2 tanks I used it on.

Thanks for post is MetroMPG I had thought about it but never got to it.

*I don't have sound on my computer so i'm sorry if he says this in the video*

Why is he commuting in a 3500?

You didn't miss anything audio-wise.

Aerocaps have always begged the question of "why not drive something else" for me. Why would this guy be any different?
