Probably not. This is a questions I recently got in class about a brand new wrap laminate that “makes your car faster.” I dismissed it immediately, remember a similar debunked claim a long time ago with a brand called “FastSkinz”.
Here's an example of the wrap that claims to make your car faster and saving on fuel economy. Photo courtesy of http://jalopnik.com/fastskinz-mpg_plus
This claim was roughly 20 percent more fuel efficiency due to the dimpled surface of the film- similar to a golf ball. I have never installed or tested with this film so after doing some research I found that there weren’t any difinitive answers on whether or not this film actually worked.
If you have had experience with this film, however, I’m interested in your comments and if you’ve seen extreme results in fuel efficiency, such as 20 percent.
From my personal research, I would have to disagree with the claims until more evidence is provided, but I will admit I like the though process put into this. I hope more research is conducted on these types of innovations in the future.
Famous quote by Thomas Edison comes to mind, “I haven’t failed, I’ve found 10,000 ways that don’t work.”
Let me know if you’ve tested this film or something similar and join the discussion on Facebook!
