In my opinion a very long layover in an interesting city is always a great opportunity. With the money you save on a cheaper fare you can treat yourself to a hotel room before or after exploring Shanghai.

I would definitely check this out again with the visa. To be on the safe side I would rather apply for a simple tourist visa than be stuck at the airport because they don't let you in. I actually never heard of this short 48h visa and I have been to China at least 15 times. However maybe that's a special arrangement for transit passengers.
3) Citizens of the following countries to transit Shanghai can stay in Shanghai up to 48 hours without applying for visas: Korea, U.S. Canada, Australia, New Zealand, French, Netherlands, France, Belgium, Luxemburg, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Austria and Greek.
