    As promised, keeping this thread posted as to continued Prius fairing activities. I have a great aerodynamics Solidworks 3D CAD model, but came across some discarded chloroplast so built a proof of concept. And purchased an older Gen2 to use for testing instead of my Gen3.

    Surprised that this fairing is too small for the Gen3 Prius. about a 10% fuel efficiency improvement. Not bad for like $20 out of pocket materials. More details at this address for anyone interested: Renewable Energy: Put A Fairing On
