Fuel Savers That Work

Make your vehicle more aerodynamic to save fuel. AeroHance Pods are fuel savings devices that work!

How AeroHance Pods Save Fuel

Turbulence, or drag forms where air flow speeding past a vehicle meets the low pressure following behind. This turbulence pulls back against forward momentum, making engines work harder.  Overcoming that drag consumes fuel. Reducing that drag saves fuel.

AeroHance Pods are aerodynamic, pod-shaped, after-market exterior automotive accessories. Fuel savers that when placed before the point where turbulence forms, enhance the flow of air to force more air behind. Adding this simple fuel savings device reduces the drag coefficient to make vehicles more aerodynamic. The more aerodynamic the vehicle, the easier it is to power through the air and the less work required of your engine.

Computational fluid analysis (simulated wind tunnel tests) revealed a reduction in the drag coefficient of between 5.2% and 6.7% when AeroHance Pods were placed 10″ before the rear windshield and along the rear sides of a Volkswagen Golf. That translates into just under a 5% reduction in fuel consumption for the vehicle tested, or around an extra gallon of gas for every tank full!

Improving aerodynamics increases range between fuel fills whether your vehicle has a combustion engine, is gas, diesel or biofuel powered, is a hybrid or electric vehicle (EV), or powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. Aerohance Pods are fuel savers that work for vehicles using all fuel types.

Fuel Savings Verified by Real World Drivers

According to auto industry experts, “For a full-size truck, a change in a drag coefficient of 0.01 is approximately equal to an improvement in fuel economy of 0.1 mpg on the combined city/highway driving cycle, … The same drag coefficient reduction can improve a car’s fuel economy by approximately 0.2 mpg.” (Improving Aerodynamics to Improve Fuel Economy at Edmunds.com, 05/05/2009)

Multiply 1.25 by the number of gallons your gas tank holds to calculate how many extra miles per tank you can expect to drive before next filling up.

  • Best results are achieved by long distance commuters and road trippers who drive primarily at highway speeds. Some freeway drivers are seeing more than an extra 6 mpg. Those driving at low speeds, with constant acceleration and slowing down, primarily driving in the city are seeing an extra ½ mpg on average.
  • Racks that run across the roof, perpendicular to the direction of travel, interfere with the flow of the air, and appear to limit the benefit of AeroHance Pods placed along the rear roof line.
  • Spoilers do just that, spoil the air flow or create drag. Beneficial counterbalance depends upon the design of the spoiler and car body type.
  • Pickup truck drivers: If your bed is open, the enhanced air drops into the bed. We’ve tallied excellent results from pickups with covered beds, or when AeroHance Pods are installed on the front of the cab roof, just behind the front windshield.
  • Best results are on otherwise aerodynamic, blunt back vehicles, such as the Prius, and other hatchbacks and SUV.

AeroHance Pods save fuel to increase driving range for vehicles of all fuel types.
