FJ: yeah, my thoughts, too.
as I went outside to see WTF! and scanned the topography, it seems the it's related. it's a very strong "downdraft", and directly related to wind speed.
and since the chimney pipe is at the edge, facing wind direction, it's not vortices spinning off the roof somehow (and a conical shaped roof shouldn't do that anyway), but more the wind "rolling" up the steep face of the hill.
I gotta do some wind chimney cap research.
yeah E.D. tried with all combinations of doors and windows open and closed, thinking of that venturi effect, all closed, all open, one side and then the other. seemed sort of random and related to specific wind direction and speed.
I am going to look into the "weather vane" style cap, that turns with the wind, creating vacuum on the down wind side.

I built it from scratch with new metal, five pounds of 7018 rod and a hitch and axle I had lying around. I cut the axle down to the correct width to track right behind the car and trued it up a little bit with a pipe bender. A fun but hurried project. I had to skimp on quality plywood and wait to paint it due to needing it for a vacation to Idaho but paint and good plywood can come later.
Fuel economy did suffer.
