    Saw this in Pop Sci. A vinyl vehicle wrap with little indentations that's supposed to increase economy:Hybrid Vvehicles, Future Hybrid Vehicles, Drag Reducing Technology, MPG-Plus™, FastSkinz™
    Are they referring to the Roadster?

    Good work as always TEG, sounded too good to be true. So the sister publication to PopSci debunks the product then the next month PopSci does an article touting the benefits? Seem like sloppy journalism.
