Tractor-Trailer Gap Closure with TruckLabs

During May of 2016, NACFE assisted TruckLabs (formerly XStream Trucking), with a real-world fuel economy test of a product the company is developing to close the gap between Class 8 tractors and trailers. During these tests (details of how the test was conducted are provided in the report) there was a 2.5% reduction in fuel use when the device was deployed.

(Please note that the name of their system has changed from the GapGorilla to TruckWings since the report was published.)
