With my short geared, big cam V8, I get 25mpg at 60, 22mpg at 70 and 20mpg at 80. Climbing a hill takes barely more fuel than going on flat land because half the fuel goes towards heating the engine oil.
That's great, my little four cylinder car can't deal with Hill climbing lol.

My small 1.5l turbo is pretty fuel efficient at normal speed, I can get 47 mpg at 80 and 31 mpg at 93 mph. But climbing hills kills any good fuel economy and at 130 mph I'm only getting 6.4 mpg
