That seems like it will add a lot more frontal area than it is worth. Tapering is a good idea. Rear wheel well covers would be good too. And there are many other suggestions in the links jedi-sol provided via aerohead.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
