Reviews of Airtab Aerodynamic Fuel Economy Saver by Truckers

During Vicki’s research on air resistance, she found the site for Airtab, which states that the products

“are small, efficient wishbone shaped vortex generators that are a practical and cost effective solution to the problem of suction or ‘base pressure’ aerodynamic drag at the back of large vehicles and at the tractor/trailer gap.”

She told Mike about her find and he said he has seen them installed on tractor trailer rigs in the USA.

On a standard 18-wheeler, there are two air drag areas:

  • directly behind the tractor and
  • directly behind the trailer.

These devices can be installed in both locations to reduce drag.

According to the website, they can “deliver fuel savings in the 2% to 5% range” and “[any] big box going down the road at highway speeds is a candidate”.

The product can be matched in color (link).

The website has downloadable installation instructions.
