Do lowering springs increase mpg?

1 Answer:
  • Adelina Mateus Mateus
    Lowered vehicles are more aerodynamic. There's less air hitting the wheels and tires (that are not streamlined shapes). This makes these cars faster. Some owners of low-stance vehicles also notice improved gas mileage.
  • What is the lowest possible drag coefficient?

    But according to Mercedes, the new A-Class sedan features the lowest drag of any production vehicle in the world, with a coefficient of 0.22. At this level, it defends the world record held by the Mercedes-Benz CLA.23 jul 2018
  • How is drag calculated?

    The drag equation states that drag D is equal to the drag coefficient Cd times the density r times half of the velocity V squared times the reference area A. D = Cd * A * .5 * r * V^2. For given air conditions, shape, and inclination of the object, we must determine a value for Cd to determine drag.
  • What object has the highest drag coefficient?

    flat plate
    A quick comparison shows that a flat plate gives the highest drag, and a streamlined symmetric airfoil gives the lowest drag--by a factor of almost 30! Therefore, we can conclude that: Shape has a very large effect on the amount of drag produced.
  • What is the drag coefficient of a C5 Corvette?

    0.29
    One could make an argument for its aerodynamic benefits contributing to the car's slippery 0.29 drag coefficient, but the fact is that they're just plain cool.12 abr 2019
  • Is drag constant?

    It is used in the drag equation in which a lower drag coefficient indicates the object will have less aerodynamic or hydrodynamic drag. The drag coefficient is always associated with a particular surface area.
