Same here. I want to see 500 from a tank, but it would probably require the cruise set at 55mph and no headwind. Back when I had my Saturn, I'd gotten as high as 42 mpg with an 80mph average (heading east), but going west the mileage was always 3-5 mpg worse.

With my 330Ci 6spd, I've seen as high as 33 mpg according to OBC with cruise at 70mph on level ground, but haven't been able to drive that slow for any length of time. Still, I can't wait for spring to try some long trips (no snows=no drive this time of year).
