Yeah, speed is the key for high mileage numbers... I routinely get 750-790km per tank (493 miles), when driving on longer highway trips, BUT, I do not use cruise control and try not to go over 100km/hr (60mph)... and take advantage of larger hills and "coast" down them as well... not quite "hyper miling", but, it does seem to help the mileage numbers. If I were to average closer to 90km/hr, I know I could easily break 850km (531 miles) on a tank. Or, 49mpg (Imperial)
