well, tailgate mesh wins huh? I dont think I ever saw that coming...
Same here, plus I like the look of a covered bed.If I was that worried about my fuel economy, I wouldn't have bought a Titan in the first place. My bed cover is for keeping cargo dry and secure, and random jackasses from using the bed of my truck as a public dumpster when I'm parked at the store.
Oh, absolutely. Cross winds have a far greater influence on my truck when the bed is uncovered versus when I have the Undercover tonneau on it.I have to admit that highway driving with a cross wind has a lot more pull with an open bed than it does with the cover closed up.

I have one on my T but I don't care for how it or any other cover looks.Same here, plus I like the look of a covered bed.
I have noticed no difference in mileage at all.I noticed no change in mileage since I put on my Extang Tri-fecta back in Dec of 09.
Good point! you are correct imo where speed is a factor to consider. Here in vegas it is normal to drive around 85mph plus on the highway and near 90-100mph going between cali and vegas. I know their are calculators out there that use mass to calulate how low your drag coefficient would have to be in order to reach a top speed. So it makes since that the increased drag at higher speeds could make your truck benefit more from any of the things they tried.I'm sorry guys but I have owned truck covers on my last three trucks and they each got a bit better milage with them on. The faster I went cruising, the bigger the reduction in fuel usage. Now as to the test in the video. Am I wrong or did their flow meter say 5.0+ gallons per hour when he announced he was doing 55 mph? If so, then that means a truck that is getting 11mpg or less at 55mph. I don't know of any truck that is that terrible on gas. Here is another point. It seems to me that the faster you would go, the better a cover would work and the worse an open bed would be. 55mph is a poor testing speed imo. How about 65mph or 70 like most highways are posted? I think there would be a significant change in the results then. What do you think?
