1,550 mile round trip high speed mileage!

had to drop off my friend off in Alabama from Michigan i drove an avg of 80 mph so 75-95 mph and was surprised with getting 31 mpg! for a 2000 cavalier 3 speed auto on a 211,600 mile car.... i thought for sure i would get like 25 mpg because of 3 speed auto... did snag a few backed up traffic i am sure it killed my mileage for a little bit.. so i thought it was pretty good mileage for the high speed...

top left to right top
RPM 3443 inst mpg 31.4
tps 26.6% middle avg mpg 27.6
fuel lev 11.5 dte 318.7

Congrats, I guess that much of all highway helps, mines a 4 speed and I do like 65-70 on the highway and average 30-31. So doig an average of 80 and getting that is better than I'd expect.
