Sunroof Tilt

I was driving home last night and had my windows cracked about 2 inches on the highway to reduce drag. I then thought what if i close all my windows and tilt my sunroof, i would assume this reduces drag tremendously. Mind you this is at night so its cool out, and my sunroof isnt open its just tilted and i dont have a air deflector on my sunroof. So any opinions on this? It felt alot smoother and i dont get all that wind noise in my car so i would think this helps out some.

It could change the air flow a little, cause some turbulence, etc. I wonder if it's worse than just using the fan.

yeah its rather interesting, i thought id post it on here because i think it might just help out alot it would basically be the same as someone with a air deflector on the sunroof in fact it might just be better since its tilted to a angle.
