Your highway number sounds right, I'm in that ballpark (39-41) going 70-75mph
I live in a large city, but there's a mix of city highways where I can cruise at a decent speed, but there's also plenty of stop & go. However, I would not like to see what it'd be like to daily commute in the rush hour... ouch!

Highway at 39.2 mpg was my ultimate best, no a/c, no passengers, flat highway, no winds... Usually on highways, my average is somewhere between 31-34mpg. Not that impressive I have to point out...
