I usually read a bit better heading to work then heading home (56-60mpg heading to work and 48-53mpg heading home) but im usually traveling a little faster (62-65mph) heading home as traffic is up my arse lol. If you can run 55mph steady thats where this thing really shines mpg wise, Its at like 1700rpm and just glides down the road.

48-50mpg is around the (anecdotal) max when not doing any hypermiling tricks with these cars (still pretty damn good). I'm curious if you get this MPG in both directions? I've driven into the hills getting in the mid-30's mpg in the past, only to come back down and actually have my cluster show a blank reading (>99.9mpg) for a decent portion of the trip back.
