"mpgforspeed" is sadly lacking in economic reality, for one thing. How many more passenger hours would it take to save that 42 million dollars for Southwest Airlines, for example?
Also, according to them I should get less mpg at 35 mph than at 55 mph. I actually get 24% better mpg.
But just go ahead with your touchy-feely trip to lala land...
