mnn.com has info on the prototype WalMart semi.

Interesting tech.

I went to the site, but couldn't find the specific article, can you put up a link? I would be interested in reading about it.

Carbon fiber trailer?! Whoa, that would be EXPENSIVE!

That's a pretty neat read! It'll be interesting to see how this concept truck affects the market.

I did have some info from transport Canada I posted. One test showed that in a 5 truck convoy the most 'fuel efficient' positions were #2 and #4.

Not sure how that will help me on an Interstate though?
