From 70-75 mph I average 37mpg. More if on a hotter day. If I slow to 45 mph I can get 58mpg. The worst I have recorded was while driving hard in the winter with stops(city) was 28mpg.

I drive 3hrs each way with many large hills.(none that require a kick down) I get up to speed quick and usually go all the way to 100 before coasting back down to 75ish. There something addicting about speed. I have to fill up every other day and run a can of seafoam once a week or so. My trip computer calculates a range of 450-500. I have driven 75 past zero before...
