There's a powerpoint slide type thing that explains how the EPA does it...straight from the horse's mouth...

Note that if you click "schedule" on one of the slides, it shows you the actual driving...pattern...they use.

Also note, the "highway" test's AVERAGE speed is 48.3mph...

The "high speed" test average speed is 48.37mph...
Yeah but have you ever tried to get an average speed above 48 without hitting reset on that function once you were at speed (not counting trips that are really long) Its TOUGH!
