Does the shape of the front wall on a TT affect MPG?

More specifically, does a TT with the wedge shaped front get better MPG by cutting the wind. They are advertised as so. I'm curious if anyone has real numbers.

When we bought our 308fbs we were told that & it actually pulls easier in the wind. We ended up getting the same mileage because our Jayco is heavier than our old Terry.

Yes they do... Also a cap on your truck bed will effect it... you can see, from the bug line, where the wind hits on my RV..
