# Do lowering springs increase mpg?

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.
