    Default Airdam Gas Mileage?

    Hey ive been thinking about removing the front valance off my 05 silverado and have been looking into it more about the airdam aspect. Does anyone know how much removing it has to do with the gas mileage? Certain amount less ? Click image for larger version.

    I know on my 06 after a deer was nice enough to slip on an icy road and remove it for me, it was about .25 to .50 mpg, if that i know some have lost more and less... And mine was also during winter when my milage was about 3mpg less..

    I removed mine on my '08 but at the same time put a AFE drop in filter and did not see any difference in fuel economy.
