Drove to a golf tournament today. Not much traffic so I set the Cruze to 70 mph. Surprised to see the results. Got the wife to take a pic while slowing down
It looks to me like it's 51.6 MPG at an average speed of 70.4 MPH but that's pretty decent fuel economy considering the average speed.

Just realized you have the Diesel lol was wondering how u were that high at 70 mph. I don't drive much at 70 but still kinda wish I had gotten a diesel. 55 mph I get around 50. The torque from diesel engines is great. Guess not having any family with a diesel made me shy away.

I found between my Eco and LT 70 M.P.H. seems to be right around a sweet spot for MPG as long as you are on flat land and not climbing hills. I believe that puts you at a cruising RPM of @ 2K. I seem to have reached that instant MPG when just cruising @ 70 on a hwy with no traffic etc. Typically shortly after that reality sets in when traffic or hills hit. But it is impressive.
