I've had alum window screen on 2 4x4 vehicles mostly to keep grass seeds/bugs off the radiator. The radiators were entirely covered....stuff tended to wash off in the rain...kept the radiators clean.

One got 35 mpg highway...the other... a truck... gets 25 mpg highway. Summer. No issues with offroad trailing causing overheat. Did not notice an mpg gain.

If you were just testing, would heavy duty aluminum foil work?
Probably not for long, but.
