I am, but I'm not about to drive my car like that in normal driving. I 
have never been one that could force myself to drive for extreme economy 
but I used to get at least 25 MPG running 70-75 for long distances. I 
think the current pump gas and the fact that I don't drive it that much 
on long runs anymore come together to cause me to get between 12 and 20 
when not in an econorun. In most cases the econorun really needs to be 
2-3 times as long but then some of the lower mileage cars would run out 
of gas before the end.
