Those pretty nice figures for that kind of speed. What did you buy? What was the purpose of that kind of tasks?

Vekke I have to say that your Lupo looks awesome.
Have those rear wheel add-ons been mpg tested yet or were they made just for the show?

Rear wheel shirts are a keep parts. Hubcaps are for the show, but I have similar polykabonate ones that have been on before the show...

No MPG figures from the skirts. I will test the cars current fuel consumtion next week.

I also received sponsor set of Nokian Hakkapeliitta R 175/70R14. I will test those also next week. I will do a rolling resistance test without rear wheel skirts, bacause those are 15mm wider per side so the current skirts wont fit. Those will be better on Rolling resistance than the B381 ecopias,but more importantly I want to see the effect on aero as well.

So the test will be a coastdown test from 140 km/h to 0. I will measure the distance diffence but also the times which it will take to 140-65 (aero) and 65-0 (Rolling resistance). I will appreciate more aero but those are also 3% taller so I have to test them also while driving to see which is actually better...

Yep 8 % taller. Those fill the wheel wells quite nicely .

Edit: today was able to reach 98.79 MPG US @ 53 MPH speed. Tomorrow another try with those nokians at the front. Route will be different though.

I don't suppose they were considering producing them any narrower than 175 mm?

Nokian Hakkapeliitta R

Smaller sizes are:
155/70R13 75 R
175/70R13 82R
155/65R14 75R
175/65R14 86R XL

So yes they make them in smaller sizes. I just happen to need taller gearings...
