What about covering the half rear of the bed, and also having a slope down from the cab on the front half?
My understanding of the half-tonneau is that the air whips around and pushes on the back of the cab. The one would cancel the other.

You could just drive 2 seconds behind a semi the whole way and get better FE improvement.
I like a flat bed with a half-height load. Less buffering than a full-height van.
