does speeding kills mileage?

Oh, and other odd thing: I had the chance to drive 450 km on a BMW 316i (E46), and I've done it with 30l RON95. That gives me an average of 6.67l/100km. The thing is we were 4 on the car, plus luggage, and for most of the time I drove at 140km/h! It took us around 3h30m to complete the trip, because I couldn't drive that fast all the time.
I've noticed that above 150km/h the "mileage pointer" (under the tachometer) was always above the 10l/100km, but at 140km/h it floated between 4l to 8l (depending on the road slope).
If you imagine a car driving @70km/h on top of other one also driving @70km/h on the same direction,this means that I should do a 3.3l/100km average on my Aveo, driving @70km/h, as I usually do.
I was convinced that speeding kills the mileage, that fuel consumption was exponential above 70-90km/h. Apparently not...

"Then there are these little 90-degree, saw-edged details along the outer profile of the fenders. These are in place to shed vortices, helping clean up the airflow around the car."

Shouldn't these be in the end of any profile?

Ready for 1500km. Let's see if it does what it's expected...
I've been doing 800/850km with the 42l of RON95, rolling at 70 or even 100km/h.
Still can't figure out how could I reach 950km only once, with the car without any mod...
