42?? :O Holy crap that's really good.

EPA rating doesn't translate into cruising though since the test cycle is not cruising. Newer 4 cylinder sedans will do high 30s at 80mph no problem these days even if the "highway" rating is lower. I wouldn't be surprised if a new Corolla could get close to 40mpg at 90mph.
