70 is 10mph closer to 40mph than 80mph.

No, my display is set to US standards so mph, mpg (US not Imperial) etc.

A favorable wind and elevation change probably accounted for 4-5mpg and the rest was quiet roads with few stops and reasonable skill at driving conservatively. If I was driving the other way (SLC -> Tonopah) the mileage, even cruising at 60mph, might have been about 35mpg. And, if I'd done that at 75mph I'd likely have been below 30mpg. Conditions matter...

I've got 43 on a roadtrip going 60 on a flat road. I regularly get 35.5 to 36 going 70-75 depending on traffic, wind, hills, etc. The best I've seen on a regular basis is 475 on a full tank.

Hi!

If you are using UK MPG, that would convert to 46 US MPG (A US gallon is 3.609 liters , where as a uk gallon is 4.2)

Still respectable by all means.

Yeah, Im going to have to second that motion. These high MPG numbers seem a little unrealistic. I drive about 6000 miles a month. The best I have ever seen is 32.5.

I don't want to say it is not possible, but......
