Fairly hilly east Texas interstate, 87 octane, and 1k miles on the ticker, I've noticed that ambient temperature makes a huge difference:

@60+ degrees Farenheit
65mph - 39~ mpg
70mph - 35~ mpg

@30* Farenheit
65mph - 33mpg
70mph - 29mpg

50*F
70mph with 15mph headwind and 40mph gusts, 28~mpg (this morning, was freaking fabulous. Went from 34.0 mpg on the readout with 100 miles on the tank to 31.5 after 30 additional miles. :( )
