Congratulation for your fuel savings results. But...

Did you think to cut A-B-C pilars and take windows and the roof out?
I think you will reduce front surface area almost a 33%. Add some boattail to your trunk and maybe you get a cd near to plane one's.
You can add some coroplast with holes for passengers heads (wearing helmets) to reduce turbulence.
I predict a fuel consumption of about 2.0 L/100 km (117 mpg us) 60 mph or more.
Please, paint or wrap the whole thing the same. or add even more tape.
