100% highway, mostly flat, keeping it under 85mph, actually watching the mpg gauge to learn to use the throttle as parsimoniously as possible.

Not sure how accurate the mpg gauge really is, but if you lift up on the throttle ever so slightly, you'll see the needle go over 30 w/o any loss in RPMs or speed.
