Truck Beds - Cover Them Up!

At higher speeds, especially at 50 mph and up, aerodynamic drag becomes a big source of friction. Friction that your engine needs to burn fuel to overcome. This costs you by lowering your gas mileage. So, you can save on gas by having a sleeker, more aerodynamic vehicle. There is not much that can be done to lessen the aerodynamic drag on a typical passenger car, but if you have a truck with an open, empty bed, you are wasting gas that you can easily save. Those big, empty truck beds cause a lot of aerodynamic drag at highway speeds. You can drop that drag by 10% putting a cover on your truck bed. Truck owners go ahead and cover up those beds! Save on gas at almost no cost to you!
