Close the gap

Updated Sep 6, 2013

“My best tip from hauling trade shows with a 53-foot van-trailer was to close the gap to at least 28 inches with the rear of the tractor. At about 30 inches, wind removes the aerodynamics, so I specifically measured each trailer I was hooking to avoid fuel mileage loss.”
