Cool beans. What tire inflation pressure do you use? We drove my wife's 2012 AT Elantra to California from Louisiana. 900 miles at the speed limit got us 34.2 mpg. One 404 mile tank at 60 mph got 38.4 mpg. Then I inflated the tires to max. sidewall pressure, kept the speed @ 60 mph, and we averaged 44.7 mpg for the next 1100 miles.
