bigger brakes and tires help that but I see your point.
I'd say more/stickier tire and balanced brake bias such that the ABS system is as effective as possible would be the best bets. Bigger brakes w/o changing anything else can end up increasing stopping distances by screwing w/ the factory bias. There's also the whole difference in time to react too... Glancing down for a second and changing to track 7 will take a second, no matter what the speed, but at ~100mph versus ~50mph you'll travel twice as far in that second. Meh, you know what's up. But I might as well post it for searches.

As long as you don't do it around anyone or anything else. I dunno about where you live, but we have freeway splits where I'll get people riding up my @$$ even though I'm going 5mph over the limit in the number two lane.

I wanted to point something out, again. MPG is kind of a dumb measure from a trying to save fuel perspective. The graph above looks like fuel consumption start to level off the faster you go, which could not be further from the truth. here it is with fuel in the numerator and it should be more obvious that fuel consumption is climbing rapidly:
Ya, you need to rescale the axis to show what you're trying to show. Make it linear...
Edit - Oh, I see. That would be really hard to do, since you just have a picture, not the actual excel graph. Nevermind.
