See... I knew I bought it for a reason. It really is more aerodynamic. That's a relief. I gotta check my MPG in the coming weeks to see what I'm actually getting.
Hope this helps all of you with your research.
Now I'm off to figure out the best drag coefficient 660cc Japanese minicar available.
Edit: PS In case anyone was wondering the Smart Car has a drag coefficient of 0.38 as listed here: http://100mpg.ca/?p=148
"and the car?s less than optimal drag coefficient of 0.38 and its considerable frontal area are not yet fighting the wind too hard. At that speed, fuel consumption is around 2.9 or 3.0 L/100 km in normal conditions."
Seems like a cool site. But I don't know what he means by the Cd being 'less than optimal' as Wikipedia lists very few cars that good.
My car has a drag coefficient of .29. Not surprisingly, there isn't a whole lot aerodynamically that I can do to improve this car. A grill block is pretty pointless, because the grill is really small. An airdam would have to be pretty small because the car is already very low to the ground.
Gotta love when your aerodynamics come from the factory.
I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
