The pioneering boffins of aerodynamics determined that a teardrop was the most streamlined shape you could get and gave it a coefficient of drag of 0.00 (or zero drag). Since those days, however, tests on teardrops have revealed they're not quite as slippery as originally thought and should actually be ...

The 2018 Ram 1500 with a 3.0-liter V-6 diesel engine achieves up to 29 mpg with an aerodynamics package, while the Ram's 3.6-liter V-6 engine is rated at 25 mpg highway. Both Ram models come standard with an automatic eight-speed automatic transmission. The 2018 Silverado is rated at 24 mpg ...
Extra weight and poor aerodynamics are natural enemies to fuel economy, so move out all that old sports equipment in your trunk and take off the roof rack when you aren't using it. Ditch the sunroof and window reflectors, too. They might keep wind noise in check during open-air driving, but they'll wreck ...
