Fuel Saving Tips
Not only do NASCAR drivers go faster while drafting, they also get a few more laps eeked outa that fuel tank. I've found at highway speeds it helps to follow someone at a SAFE DISTANCE so they break the worst of the wind... With my dad's conversion van on long vacations, we could get +2 mpg by following other vans/semi-trucks. Of course leave a few car lengths ahead of you, and do not follow semi's too closely since you can't see around them at all, but they do make great wind-breakers!
