I have kept my tires at 40-to 42 psi since August of last year. I didn't see much change but I know it can hurt. 44.7 is a great return. I can image that I would have done better if I could have made the whole trip at 60. I felt like I at least had to maintain 65mph durring the 75mph speed limit sections. Most of the traffic was already not happy with me since they were doing about 80mph.

On a second note my 90 day average is finally above the epa's combined number of 32mpg. I can definatley see that my changes to the car, my driving style and some route planning have made an impact on my fuel consumption over last year around this time. Limiting the use of the A/C has aslo helped a little. Although, not on this last trip.
