Did you know that by simply waxing your car you can gain about 2 miles per gallon more. Is it just me or is it true, what do you think

Waxing my truck yields no improvement whatsoever, even on freeway.
I wax it so it looks good

I wax my car to keep it all shiney and nice. Plus it gets a Teflon-Like coat every 2 Years. Helps keep rust away. Fix rust asap and keep the car well tuned, gas mileage a moot point anymore, my car is over 25 years

"Did you know that by simply waxing your car you can gain about 2 miles per gallon more."

Sounds like waxing your car induces you to change your driving behavior.

Otherwise ,wishful thinking.
