However, if you'd like a cargo net, check truck accessories websites, maybe google.
If memory serves me right, the cargo net was the only thing that improved gas mileage on the Mythbusters show.
I don't know of anybody with a cargo net on here, sorry I can't be of help.

Mythbusters did some testing to see if removing a tailgate, or dropping it down improved gas mileage. I think it either stayed the same or made things worse. The only thing that had positive improvement over mpg was a cargo net -if I remember correctly.
