Ah dang if I didn't take a picture of my best. I have gotten 21 MPG at 70 MPH. If course I was drafting Semi's on straight and flat road. Otherwise than that 17.3 at 80 MPH on mixed roads and not staying Semis.

I’ve gotten 20 during mid summer and like 18 when it’s colder out.

The best I was able to get was about 18.0. Guess I need to slow down and start drafting larger vehicles more

I do 20 hand calc if I'm keeping it 60ish on mountain roads (21 on lie-o-meter) if I do 70-75 it's 17 mpg. Normal commuting is 17-18 mpg, but that is start, some city, then about 65 for the rest. Lie o meter always reads about 1 mpg higher than hand calc for me. I only run 92 octane.

You can adjust the lie-o-meter. Mine was 6% high orignially and the 21.1 I got above is after I adjusted the multiplier.

I get about 15mpg but I live out west wHere the speed limit is 80 mph which means I’m doing 85-87mph. 70mph I’d get about 18mpg but seeing as how this is the internet, I’ll tell everyone that I get 25 mpg with a headwind and 30 mpg with a tailwind. It’s the internet so everything I’m saying is true…haha

I got 45mpg from the Utah state line to Cheyenne one time. Of course the wind was blowing about 70mph from the west….
