Golf Ball Technology May Improve Your Car’s Gas Mileage
Posted by keelynet on January 20, 2009
What a slick idea, pun intended…
“Long ago, golf ball manufacturers discovered that a dimpled surface would help a ball to fly farther through the air with less drag, so why not apply the same thinking to cars? The dimples reduce the wake turbulence caused by early separation of the boundary layer. FastSkinz are made by SkinzWraps, better known for those commercial car wraps that advertise things like radio stations and rap albums, although thankfully, the aerodynamic FastSkinz are pretty discreet. The company claims an 18-20 percent improvement in gas mileage, although independent testing is still needed.” – Source
