I think it was 4 miles by 7 miles of prairie and badlands.
Not to mention the gorgeous scenery; I've always liked Montana.

Back to the original topic: Chicago freeways, when traffic is moving, is hard to beat for MPG. Wind-protected with walls and whatnot, lots of traffic moving in the same direction, and moderate speeds=great mileage.
