PIB TIP: THINK AERODYNAMIC. Snug the trailer tight to the tractor to cut down on wind resistance. The ride may not be as good, but the savings are worth the trade-off. Add features such as roof fairings, chassis fairings, cab extenders and aerodynamic mirrors. Mount air cleaners under the hood. Following these tips will help your existing truck be more fuel efficient.
