30mpg is a great for average mpg, when I got the 36 that one time it was just a straight freeway shoot with no traffic. I live in california so I feel you on the heat, sometimes unless you want to show up to work sweating you have to use the AC.

Yes for some reason I get better mpg at 60 to 62 then at 55, I know this sounds stupid but this is what my ultraguage tells me, i think when I hit the 60 to 62 mark I Must be in the overdrive gear, this is a guess I don't know much about cars.

I use synthetic oil and this may contribute to some mpg gains

I too inflated my tires to max sidewall, really watch your tire pressure I once let it get low an was getting 22mpg which is just sad.

Living on the edge with the spare not in tow haha I have AAA too, how much do you think the tire weighs?
