I was an owner operator and I was hurting for fuel mileage as I had a 475 cat under the hood. Fuel is the bottom line to a successful business and as necessity is the mother of invention I applied a well know phenomenon in the aircraft industry to my tractor trailer in an attempt to reduce drag and save fuel. I increased my MPG by at least 3/10 on my truck with this method.
I have been trying to introduce this simple fuel savings Energy Conservation Device into the trucking industry for years and have run into a lot of obstacles. When it comes to big business involved with energy it is more of something to sale than to save.
So I offer this to you for your own personal use, any owner operators, by directly connecting the high pressure on the vehicle to the centrally located low pressure area on the back of your trailer helps reduce wind resistance and drag. A simple 3’ flex tube and a couple of black rubber bands will work just fine, best wishes with this and for more info Douglas Fairburn on face book, at the bottom of the info page you will find my web-site.
