I have a topper on this RAM. I've had hard bed covers on three other p/u for security only. None have helped mileage.

Mythbusters did a test on MPG increase or decrease, and the results were not conclusive, in other words a tonneau does not help increase your miles per gallon or in my case litres per kilometer.

My aluminum bak-flip G2 will be here in a week or two. Nice thing about them is I can remove the cover portion completely by myself without taking off the rails and it can be used partially open or folded all the way to the cab. Plus I can stand on it as long as one panel is folded back over another.

I have a Tonneau Pro, does the trick and I only paid like 269.00. I've noticed no increase in mpg but who would in the winter with this crappy gas were getting.

I have a soft tonneau and love having one for the sake of keeping stuff dry and safe.
