79. Meh, I'm more worried about gas mileage than speed now...
Edited on Wed Nov-02-11 09:57 AM by Fumesucker
When I actually drive that is.

Most vehicles get the best highway mileage at the slowest speed they will run smoothly in the highest gear they have, a lot of cars that turns out to be about 50, I don't like going that slow so I tend to run 55 to 60 but I'm not a fanatic about it, if everyone else is blasting along and the traffic is heavy I'll speed up to keep from being a real impediment to traffic flow.

ETA: Without gas mileage and cops concern I'd probably be doing 80-85 a lot on open interstate.
