I remember a contest when the first Honda Insight was available, one of the teams use a Ford Excursion, and they opened up the back completely and put these wooden boards underneath it to divert all air away from the vehicle. Then they made a trip while drafting super close to the Excursion. On a car rated at something like 50mpg, they ended up getting 150mpg. On the highway wind resistance is huge.
