You can probably do Omaha to Denver in a day; just watch for cops on I76 in CO. I've never seen so much as a speed trap in Neb.
And there's no reason to be giving a normal RS 92 octane. Run it till it's on E, put in 87 (or nine, or whatever you get out there) and reset the ECU just to keep it from having issues.
You can crusie through Nebraska at ~90, I cruised down 76 at that speed too, but I had a radar detector, although I didnt even pick up a single cop.
