It's called drafting.

Useful, but very dangerous when in traffic as you have to stay quite close (a car length or two max) to the large vehicle in front of you to make it work.

I’ve done this a time or two myself, but it’s remarkable hat you can still keep a safe distance, but still see in increase in fuel economy.

That being said, please don’t follow our truckers too closely. It’s dangerous and will irritate them very quickly. If you can’t see their mirrors, they can’t see you.
