Huh... i really don't like the "broadside wake" or "surf" suggestion. Maybe I didn't read it thoroughly enough, but 1) obstructing traffic by hovering there and not passing (left lanes are for passing) and 2) camping out in a rig's blind spot add up to 2x stupid, dangerous driving to me. I'm all for saving gas, but not at the expense of safety. I unfortunately CAN picture some numnutz taking some of this info and using it incorrectly like driving his prius 40mph on the hwy (65 posted) to save gas. I sure hope I'm wrong, but somehow I fear someone will eventually, unfortunately, prove me right.

agreed in the danger. Lots of stuff in there is very interesting though. for the most part, after reading all around, i think im going to put a little more air in my tires and leave it at that,,,ive settled on 34psi for all 4
