Cognitive dissonance, anyone?
I've had several cars that get better fuel economy at 70mph than 60
hell, with the 0.64:1 overdrive in my 6.0L gto and all the low end torque,
she got 15-20% better fuel economy @ 75+ then at 55-60

I doubt that's the case for most of the cars being driven by forum members here tho
