Default 2018 -2019 Front bumper lower valance ??

Anybody remove the lower bumper valance?

seem very big to me. I know that Ford engineers use a wind tunnel when researching a body style change and it has some aerodynamic function. But I wonder how much? I made a 200 mile trip last weekend through the Texas hill country I got an avg 21 mpg. I am thinking of removing bumper valance before making the same drive this weekend.

Yes I have removed mine on my 19, just 8 or 10 screws and popping it out of the plastic clips.

Many of us have cut it down as well. Maybe keeps some of the benefits, but doesn't look so hideous.

I removed mine when I leveled my '18 XLT. I still average 18.4mpg.
