Once I'm on the freeway section of my trips to and from work I put the cruize on 60 mph (speed limit is 55....can you believe it, huge freeway too) I've been applying the idea of getting into 6th asap lately too. This little cold snap has lowered my mileage but its going to warm back up tomorrow, so it will go up again. How much did it lower my mileage, well, I always check my average after getting gas and driving the 31 miles to work and lately my average would show almost 46 mpg's but yesterday it showed 41.2 mpg, big initial drop for sure but now I get to watch it rise on the fly with the warming back up.
Even though I'm a gearhead at heart, I like the challenge of getting better mileage and hope to get another trophy on my screen again, I've only gotten one so far!
