You're closest! I got 41mpg doing 400 miles of 60mph today. Aside from somehow slipstreaming someone the whole way I can hardly imagine it getting much better.

The car got back safely tonight but with some battle scars. I damaged the air dam and rear belly pan structure while mild offroading the car on a remote logging trail. Lucky- another car in our group tore a hole in his gas line, one got stuck and the last had exhaust flange issues.

Pics tomorrow... and a video of the logging trail
