I am sure that driving 55 increased my mpg but is this picture accurate given my conditions?

I also see this sort of mileage at around 55mph steady state flat ground. Using non-winterblend 87 or 93.

I am currently tracking a full tank of 90 octane recreational gas (100% gas) and will let you know how it goes. Going to calculate at the pump.
