This is important, I got a Rolo roof rack for my Tribute and due to the noise and gas mileage sacrifice I eventually got rid of it

mpg was that bad?

Mine are only on the car when I know I'll need them...yeah MPG is notable (1-2mpg). I'm also curious if the fairing reduces the noise...I know exactly how much those yakima round bars howl

Also: Nice work!
