With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Drive slower, make sure the engine has fresh spark plugs that are propperly gapped, and clean air filter.

Worn plugs can make a - 2 mpg difference.

I run mine at 45 also..
Last tank was a little over 19 mpg.

Biggest factor though is to keep your foot out of it.

I do lot's of highway miles. If I set cruise at 65 it may take me 20 minutes longer to get there (on a 2 hr drive.) but I use a lot less gas..
