On my car I have noticed, fill panel or not, identical behavior of raindrops on the windshield. That is, on about the bottom 1/4 to 1/3 of the windshield, the drops just sit there even at highway speed, whereas on the rest of the windshield they are blown up and to the sides.
On mine, raindrops hit the entire windshield regardless. But before the cover, driving to work in the morning would burn off all the morning dew. After the cover, the dew on the bottom third or so would still remain.

Below is my van, just a different color. The wipers are RIGHT in the airflow.
