I've done the extreme mpg game with 4 cylinder mode over long flat distances. I can't go faster than 48mph or I pop out of V4 mode(according to the evic).

That's where the data loggin feature really helps. I've found that when the MAP gets up to ~95~, you're fixin' ta drop back into 8 mode at any second. Generally, the throttle % needs to stay below 20 - 22,,, With those general guidelines in place, and in some very gentle inclines / declines, I was able to obtain higher speeds. I also believe the motor 'lugs' a bit better with 91. (knock sensors don't pull as much timing back due to the higher octane producing less 'knock')
