As Aerodynamic as a....

While back in the UK visiting mum I saw what has to go on the list of bunny hugging gone mad. At the end of the road is a Defender which, even for the non-tecnical minded, is easily regarded as vehicle that would appear pretty far down the list of cars you'd choose if fuel efficiency was your priority.

Well, this neighbor has his long wheel base defender and has fitted a huge roof rack for maximum stuff carrying (good man).

However, if you look carefully, he has also fitted one of the aerodynamically designed Halfords storage boxes. Why did he choose to add on of these?

Well apparently to help with fuel efficiency!! On a Landdrover!!

He maintains every little helps!! On a truck as about as aerodynamic as a filing cabinet!! It takes all sorts.
