Hyundai Accent Grill Block

I filled up this afternoon after a comibination of city and highway driving and got 32 mpg. This is an achievment because my wife but half the miles on and she drives very aggressively. There are four rectangular openings in my grill, I blocked off the bottom two tonight after work. I can't wait to see how this will affect my fuel mileage...

Thanks. It doesn't look great, but I think its pretty good. I used duct tape, but I did paint it gold like the exterior...Here is a pic of the stock grill, (not my car as mine is a 2 door). But I also blocked off the weird circle in the corners where some cars have fog lamps (mine were just empty wind traps).
