Keeps the bugs off the front of the FW, doesn't do anything for fuel economy. At least it didn't for me.

I've always wanted a Taylor wing, just to keep the bugs to a minimum on the front of the trailer. Fuel mileage stinks anyway so not too worried on that end. I think the general response is pretty much what Grumpy said, at least from what I've seen on multiple forums.

You will never make the cost of the wing back in fuel savings...

Like a lot of things I've done to our truck or rig. A lot of times no need or can't really justify it, but it sure does look good. I always wanted one just for the reduction in bugs.
