Talking about aerodynamics. I severely modified my Chevy Volt to add 250W of solar panels, but I'm still getting 40 MPG in all-gas mode. I never drove it much on gas and so have no history of MPG prior to the mods. Theoretically, I'll get about 30 miles a week during the summer free solar power. See the red Volt on http://aprs.org/my-EVs.html In some sense rounding out the back of some shapes actually can improve aerodynamics... or make up for other losses...
