What our US Customers say about Airtabs™!
We made the trip from Myrtle Beach, S.C. to Yosemite National Park okay. I had varied results on fuel mileage during the 3000 mile trip. With my unit, a 2004 Alfa See Ya with the 330 CAT engine, I got anywhere from 7.6 to 9.5 mpg. My fuel mileage prior to the installation of the Airtabs™ was between 7.6 and about 8.0...Probably the best thing was when we went through some rain in Texas, the view behind us was very clear, so the Airtabs™ definitely improved rear vision for us. The vehicles all around us were putting up mist like crazy and ours was not. Ira Reynolds RV Driver, see more
What our New Zealand Customers say about Airtabs™!
After installing AirTabs we found the handling of our Hino Rainbow motorhome significantly improved. The steering became much more positive with fewer corrections to stay straight and considerably better when driving in wind. There is reduced roll, and buffeting from oncoming trucks almost eliminated. We are delighted with our AirTabs Ray and Shirley Dunick from Christchurch, See more Testimonials from New Zealand

"The best design is the simplest design that works."

are powerful vortex generators that reduce vehicle drag, save fuel, and improve vehicle safety by improving stability and mirror visibility in rain or snow. Airtabs™ are usable and applicable to a wide range of vehicles including trucks, tractor trailers, RVs, coach, bus, van or any square backed vehicle or trailer.
Airtab® Fuel Savers provide users with the following benefits:
FUEL ECONOMY: 2-5% range in fuel savings
SAFETY: Airtabs™ drastically alter the airflows at the vehicles rear and help stabilize the vehicle or trailer, especially in gusty and/or cross wind conditions. This improves handling quality, reduces driver stress and fatigue and reduces adjacent lane incursions. Airtabs™ increase vehicle safety by improving mirror visibility in rain or snow yielding safer lane changes in bad weather.
LOW COST: Rapid Return on Investment (ROI). For long haul operations, less than 60 days for tractor and trailer equipped with Airtabs. Less than 90 days for tractor only equipped with Airtabs.
ZERO MAINTENANCE: No maintenance or special training is required.
RAPID INSTALL: Usually 1 man-hour per unit. Minimum vehicle downtime and no special equipment needed.
OPERATIONAL IMPACT: None
Fuel economy improvements are achieved by vehicle aerodynamic drag reduction at two key locations; the tractor trailer gap and the rear facing surface of any square backed truck, trailer, RV, coach, bus or van.
Airtabs™ improve vehicle stability and safety by altering the airflow patterns at the vehicle's rear. The large random swirls at the rear doors are replaced by dozens of small, vigorous, "stream-wise" counter rotating vortices that trail several feet behind the vehicle. This airflow alteration improves vehicle stability, improves handling quality in gusty winds, reduces driver workload, stress and fatigue and reduces the number of adjacent lane incursions.
Airtabs™ improve vehicle safety through spray suppression improving mirror visibility in rain or snow. This delivers safer vehicle lane changes as well as improving the visibility of other road users.
Airtabs™ reduce snow (and weight) and road grime accumulation at the vehicle rear. Cleaning costs are reduced and vehicle safety is improved by keeping conspicuity tape and brake/tail/running lights more visible.
Airtabs™ are a proven technology. Airtabs™ are an award winning, effective, low cost, rapid return on investment, low weight, no maintenance product that do far more than save fuel. Airtabs™ help to make large vehicles and trailers safer to drive in all weather conditions.
Airtabs™ are in use around the world and have withstood scrutiny in many different markets and applications. Airtabs™ have garnered accolades from both NASA and our customers for simplicity, performance efficacy, safe practices compliance and innovation.
