We installed Air Tabs on our '34 MH, and found they did essentially nothing for fuel efficiency (maybe over many many miles, like in a fleet situation it would add up) but that it improved stability.
Really helped with the "suck and blow" action when being passed by semis.

That is about the fastest air-tab topic so far. 7 posts beginning to end. Well done.
