Well my normal exit ramp on the freeway is almost done. I decided to try a couple commutes back on the freeway for a few miles of the commute at least. I was very pleasantly surprised in that I made the same mileage as if I had taken the slower roads.
Today:

To work 61.9 mpg, ave mph 40 max around 65
back home 81.7 mpg, ave mph 37 max around 67

This beats 70 mpg for the day. I guess that is my target for now.
Tank is at 69.8 mpg with ave speed of 37 mph.
This is a lot less work and a bit quicker for nearly the same mileage. I had not commuted on the freeway for several months. I have done a few things to the car since then.

My gaslog is certainly leveling off after a long steady rise. There is no economic justification for more effort at this point. OOPS that sounds complacent

Filled up today. 24.76mpg, and I beat on it hard. Not good by y'all's standards, but I think that's pretty decent for anything taken to 7200rpm several times on the tank

Filled up on Friday - 567.5 miles, 10.346, 54.85MPG (US) - my best ever tank! I remember when my target was 40, then 45, then 50MPG!

This is probably the last fill for my car in the UK as I'm off to New Zealand in a few days - will have to see what I can get over there.

vt240 - is your 200sx the KA24DE one (2.4 litre?). Is it an S13 'hatch' or saloon?.

I've got a 1.8 200SX but it has been off the road for a while - they are brilliant cars though, very good aerodynamics, but still very heavy on the fuel!

Now proudly at #32 on the "% over EPA" list. Wheee!
Officially 56.05% over EPA, currently averaging about 31.5 mpg or so.
