I arrived at an idea of splitting it up and making a wedge shaped battery cover and above my back window a ramp to direct the down instead of creating an eddy current in the truck bed.
I had some extra triangle shaped plastic left over so I slapped it on the back, making some really cool tail fins. My kids now call the truck the "White Rocket".
More than a dozen times have people recommended to me that I need to paint the truck black so it looks more like a Bat-Mobile.
Here is a picture of the new bed cover that I made out of PVC pipe and a sheet of shower shell plastic.
It's also on a hinge so I can still access the batteries for their quarterly watering.
Unashamed, I put some web advertising on it too.
The 125mpg sticker is sort of a lie. It is really closer to 132mpg.
Recently, a longer top-off charge has been necessary to keep the batteries in shape so 125mpg is still pretty accurate.
