Today’s tip may or may not be able to help you out, but if it can, it’ll help you save a bunch of cash.
If you can help it, avoid having (or adding) a spoiler on your car.
Look, I know this isn’t going to help you if you have a car that already has one, but maybe this will help dissuade you from getting a car with a spoiler or adding one to your car.
The basic function of a spoiler is to add downforce to your car to help improve handling at high speeds, so at it’s very nature, having a spoiler will hurt your fuel economy.
Much like when you have your sunroof or windows open, a spoiler adds a lot of drag to your car, which, as I’m sure I’ve made you aware, drastically reduces your vehicle’s gas mileage.
So, if you can avoid buying a car that’s got a spoiler, or can avoid putting one on your car when you “trick it out,” you’ll save a bunch of money.
