On the freeway stayed just under 70 got around 17 mpg. Now, Driving around town in Seattle get somewhere between 11 & 12 that's with the MDS in and out like a Yoyo.
The trip was all freeway, mostly 65-73 mph with the occasional traffic slow down and road construction. This was I95 between NJ and FL, fairly flat road but lots of up and down small hills from VA through SC. Temps 65 to 85.

Uktitus what did you get hauling up Mt. Shasta about 8mpg? lol I have driven the I5 between Portland and Sacramento a few times.
