Hmmm...guess I should give it a try. I honestly didn't think it would be that much. But then again your car on there is pretty low profile. I think the jeep on mine creates more drag than the ramps.

I had to confirm it myself a while back.... ran out to PA to pick up an Equinox and had better MPG coming back loaded....the roof line was about even with my ramps(5ft ramps),I had it loaded about a ft in front of the ramps because I had 2 motorcycles on the front of the trailer I ended up grabbing.....IIRC I pulled 15mpg on the way out empty and 17 on the way back....only thing I can say is try took a few trips before I believed it...the only downfall is lugging the ramps around and strapping them down(or build a set of slide in ramps).
