Do you accelerate to your target speed at 85% load and then coast again even on the uphill, or do you reach your target speed and then stay there until the top?
You might also want to see this test I ran on coasting uphill on freeways:
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
