I can tell you on the Ford pickup forums the guys driving on the street are trying to get the deeper air dams (job 2 over job 1) as people claim better mileage with them.

My Segway does 12.5 MPH, but I can get it to 13... briefly.

I've had my Segway up to 60 mph,








in the back of my car.

(I stole that from Steve Woz).

You might try something more slippery, banana peels, dog drool (I know a St. Bernard that could 'paint' the whole RV with a couple of tail-to-nose shakes) or maybe a synthetic oil that shall remain nameless.

"That Theory" is a theory that can be anything. A theory called "That" must cover everything except a specific theory. Kinda like "they" said blah blah blah. Just who is "they"? Same with "that". Just what is "that"? It is the unknown known. Or is that the known unknown?

I hope you think what I said is what I thought I meant and what you think I meant is what I thought I meant to say. Got "that"?

Strangely enough, I think what you said is what you thought you'd mean to say.
Although I have to think if what you said is really what you meant to say. That is, if you really thought it. Do you think?

As a former USAF T-38 pilot I can say hat they never waxed any of our jets to make them either faster or get better range.

The scary part is, I think I understood you both! Evidently, I've been hanging around here way too long.

Consider how wax will make your rig 'go faster' this way. Go to any used RV lot and look at how the previous owners took care of their rigs, my guess is the shiny ones 'go off the lot faster' than the faded out, dull units.
