The highest I've seen at 70 was nearer to the 37-39 mpg mark (the 39 mpg was either a short tank or the next one was less efficient and less efficient than the tank before and after the 39 mpg tank. That's realistically within the range I expect anyone to see with this car. Anyone who claims to get 42+ at 69 mph sounds like its not possible to me based on my personal experience with the car as well as the road speed vs mpg curves both by popular mechanics as well as by user kam327.
