    Hey everyone I was thinking about purchasing a turbo wing for my W900 and I wanted your opinion, since I have an acert c15 twin turbo it’s a Deiselohlic and the fact it’s a long hood I wanted to see if a turbo wing will improve my fuel mileage and by how much. Is it even worth the investment ? What’s your thoughts

    My friend bought a non shiny wing with a adj. wing when we were hauling 13ft. 6 ' on flatbeds my mid roof was pulling like I had a chute behind my truck, he said he paid way less than the chrome ones and he said it helped a lot on fuel on hi loads and he could adj. it flat on the way back with a low level load.

    Just last week Kevin Rutherford on Sirius/XM radio told a caller that you will generally have better fuel economy if you do not install a turbo wing.

    So basically you’ll save thousands of dollars a year by installing one.

    That's because he doesn't sell them. If he sold them they would be the best thing since sliced bread.

    I had a whale tail on a W9 when I pulled refer, I took it off because of a leak and ended up getting a .25mpg better.
