2 Mpg Increase

Has anyone heard of this front spoiler for under the bumper that exstends down further to keep air from hitting the firewall on the highway?

Isn't it rendered useless if you're truck is lifted?

I put one on my 450 and it did not change my milage abit. I have over 2000 miles of mixed driving with it and no change...except for a 102 dollar charge to my visa!
It bolts right where the black spoiler is under your bumper and is about 6 inches tall in stead of around 2 inches. Maybe it would yeild results on a truck with the normal front axle but the 450 has the wide track axle so that could cause it to not work??
I wish I would have bought 29 gallons of diesel instead of a piece of plastic.

I like how it looks on the F450s, but aerodynamics don't mean much until you reach 85+ mph and most times don't really take much affect unless your over 100

04 Silverado 2500HD LB7/Allison, EFI live by duramaxtuner.com with DSP5, 4" MBRP turbo back straight pipe, polished 5" tip, 5% tint, riding on 285 fierce attitudes, many more mods....

Here's some stuff that absolutely works.

Unfortunately, my air dam is now rolled up inthe garage. It can't hack more than 3" of snow and the steppes of central Indiana get snowy this time of year.

That thing looks ridiculous, even if you got a 10mpg increase I wouldn't consider it..

If it truly works I am ready to get an additional 10mpg. Down here in Texas we don't get snow we do get more than 3" of rain in a day . How well will it work as a squeege?
