    I usually average 28mpg cruising down I-5 at 90-95 in my LS, I have no doubt an Eco can get 20 around 106.

    I have the trifecta tune with an Automatic transmission. I took it up to 110 +/- mph in Delaware on a stretch of road that parallels the Acelera Amtrak train. I tried to catch the train, using it as an opportunity to see what the car could do. I backed off at that speed after realizing that I still had plenty of juice left. I wasn't even at full throttle for the entire run, and the MPG on that 20 mile stretch with the pull was still a surprising 26 MPG. It handles shocking well over 100 mph.. kids don't try it at home!

    I've taken my LS up to 115 +/- mph on a newly paved stretch of I-5 around noon during a break in traffic where there was no one on the road going either direction(weekday) and my Cruze was just starting to feel like it was struggling. My stock 1.8 doesn't have the same top end boost that a tuned 1.4T does .

    Lol, who said I was shifting? When it had 3.42's in the back I could just barely eek out 140 before I hit the limiter at 7800RPM in 3rd
