Hey again fellas,

I was just wondering how much slower a stock convertible will run with the top down, and if you get worse mileage.

I'm looking for figures (if there are any), so please don't post to affirm what I already know.

Thanks in advance,
cbreslin

Not 2 knowledgable on this but I'm almost 100% you'll get worse mileage because I would expect there to be more drag so if theres more drag that means less gas mileage and slower car

Yeah, that's exactly what I thought. I was just hoping somebody may have had some figures or at least a semi-accurate estimation on how much slower / how much more gas I'd be burning.

I don't think it could be so much worse than riding with all the windows down
