This thread is mostly to test if images from Ecomodder.com embed correctly in this forum. It's also a great resource for anyone wanting to get the most range out of their Spark as possible.

Tests good, over?

The G1 Insight was incredibly light and aero, but that mod would help.
I owned 2 of them at different times. I sold the last one to my daughter and that dang thing just won't get old and die..... :P

Did that poster show any data on how well it worked?

Yeah, this site doesn't have problems displaying linked images like the Bolt forum does.

Daren found the boat tail improved fuel economy 10%, which is pretty good considering how efficiently that car was designed in the first place.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Spark could get 15% or better range with a well designed boat tail.

Here's Darin's results from many tests:

... I'd like to get a Spark EV or Leaf soon, but the prices have been holding pretty steady and even increasing over the last year. My preference would be Spark due to active thermal management and a more efficient design, though price will dictate what I end up with.
