I know some hypermilers and members here do 55mph, and even far below. I did 55mph behind a truck on the less populated Intestate in NY once, and the mpg gain was fantastic! Please help me and other Americans slow... down...
You won't be harassed or run off the road as long as you do your slow(er) driving in the rightmost lane. It comes down to having common sense and using common courtesy.
