Default Don't level your trucks!!! LOL

If you guys level your trucks, they will no longer be going downhill all the time and will require more gas. LOL. I just had to share this pic with y'all.

I mean, while the premise is wrong, the physics behind it do lead to worse MPG's. Raising the front of your truck will make it less wind resistant and give you worse MPG's.

I lowered the rear of my truck by an inch, and I measured height to the front tow hook heights before and after. Even that raised the front by a tad, around 3/8". I never noticed a difference in fuel economy, but theoretically it could be worse by a small fraction.

I have a cheap level on my truck, it's called several hundred pounds of battery cases.

But...
The higher I lift my vehicle, the closer it is to the atmosphere, the less gravity affects it. = more MPG
