The speed limit of I-15 between Salt Lake City, UT and the Arizona border is half 75, half 80mph. Everybody did 80 +/- 1 or 2 mph... from Prius to Hummer to 18 wheeler. The state troopers were out there, none of them ever had anyone pulled over.

SLC, UT to St. George, UT - 444kms on 31.6L - 7.1L/100kms - 33mpg

As for the carpool lanes, get rid of them! I've always found that (in most big cities: L.A, San Fran, Vancouver BC) the slowest lane is the HOV lane... except for Seattle... HOV lane users in Seattle know how to fly down the road!!
If you're in Nebraska and the wind stops or you see a tree, pull over immediately and take a nap. You're having road hallucinations.
