Thats GOOD MPG.
I got 20 mpg running 80 MPH at 3k rpm. Of course-ETHANOL. REAL GAS would have been better.

That's great. I think the major factor here would be the fact you kept it 60mph. Driving habits are the key to improved mileage. Smooth and easy wins the race when it comes to MPG. BTW, I couldn't agree more, Ellensburg is a great town!

I got 23 MPG driving up to Moab loaded down with firewood and camping stuff and on 32's. It was because I was doing about 60mph and going easy on the gas.

Yep lots of ethanol free gas stations in OK. As others have said I believe it was the cruise set at 60 and cool temps that helped most. I got 22.7 on my last trip to OK from Denver but sticking to the back roads, cruise at 65 most of the trip, short shifting and favorable winds. At 60 I'm afraid I'd be a rolling roadblock on most highways!
