That's real good MPG. My 98 T/A Convt (heavy) only gets 32.4 mpg doing 65 mph. That is from a Scanguage with everything calibrated.
I have C5 Y2k's so 245/45/17 on the front and 275/40/18 on the back. Didn't notice a tailwind. Your TA auto or manual? I gotta try driving just like 55 sometime... could be crazy mpg.
