    Best I've gotten was 33 at 80mph, but I don't have proof. Have this though. 557rwhp and stock gears and converter. Not too shabby I'd say. It's still better than my 2.4L AWD Terrain gets at 70mph.

    running 75 it was on a trip from Helotes, TX to El Paso and that was with the original engine.

    My new engine is just getting broken in now with about 20,000 miles on it so the mpg are going up.

    I use the cruise all the time on the open road
