Driving without air

I got a nice little tip from a forum post (will update later if I can remember where) on how to keep the FFH nicely ventilated while driving without air conditioning.  Opening the front windows can be noisy and as on many cars opening a rear window can create a "beat" sound which is annoying.  But if you raise open the back of the moon roof and crack the right rear passenger window about an inch or two, the driver gets a nice cross breeze and its not loud.

I'd be curious to see what effect that had on wind resistance and thus on MPG

Depends how fast you're going - probably doesn't have much impact in city/suburban driving under 50 mph.
