SPOILERS FOR TRUCKS

Fuel economy of trucks as a function of spoiler shape and size was investigated on models 1:30 in a wind tunnel and full-scale on a test road. A moderate investment in spoilers resulted in significant fuel economy, especially for high-shaped trucks, and high velocities. There is presented a diagram of saving depending on driving velocity and height of the spoiler.
