Hi from Miami

Hello everyone... I've been checking the site and registered a few days ago but havent posted till now

I'm from Miami, FL and have 06 GMC Canyon pretty much stock except for a tonneau cover that doesnt help with my mileage at all

I've always gotten better mileage then the EPA estimates but i still want to improve it... hopefully i can get some tips in here... see you around!

would help more, no? I heard that the way it works is to keep the gas from evaporating. So maybe the only place it would NOT work is on a Prius with those funny gas tanks that keep the fuel from evaporating and hence have the same effect as acetone. Correct me if I'm wrong.

agonzalez -

Welcome to GS! Someone made a nifty "sloped" truck bed cover for their truck, but I can't remember their handle. It looked 100% retail to me. Maybe they'll pipe up. I would search the Garage for similar trucks and see what they did.
