I don't think I will trying this any time soon

I used to do this on the interstates with my VW, although never tried to catch the pulling wind behind a fuel truck. What is needed in this situation is a Yike Bike. (www.yikebike.com ) No need to leave it in the street for ladrones to steal, you fold it up and carry it with you like a (well, kind of large) umbrella.
When estimating costs remember that labor is free.
