I dunno! I only drive 70 mph a few times a year, when on long (multi-day) trips.

The rest of the year, I toodle along the scenic side roads at ~50 mph / 80 km/h.

But theoretically, an unmodified 5-speed Mirage is good for ~42 MPG US @ 70 mph on level ground in warm weather.

The Metro/Firefly (unmodified) is about the same.
