Thanks for all the replies. The car does have a 4spd auto w/overdrive but the sweet spot seems to be around 55mph. I don't have a tach so an educated guess on the rpms at 65 are about 3000-3500ish. I usually run the AC on high until the car is cool and then turn it down to 1. Off isn't an option when my fiance is in the car and on the last half of my trip I did the cool the car down then turn the AC off, repeat when warm. I may try a few aero mods like grill blocks or a belly pan in the future but for now I'll try to improve my driving techniques.

P.S. What spark plugs do you guys recommend. I recently got a set of Bosch +4 platinums and I HATE them. I don't find they work as good as the worn out Champions that I took out. Plus how do you check the gap... it's nuts. Thanks again.
