Sigh... I'm doomed. I am convinced that I could hit 70 for a tank but it would take way too much effort and would make me the recipient of many many gestures from the proctologists behind me. If I worked the night shift, 75 would be doable. But there isn't a night shift where I work and even if there was, my wife would divorce me.
But enough about my problems. Congratulations Metro!
Percentage wise your still the king. Congrates Metro you are really posting amazing numbers. Methinks the top of the mountain is still a good ways in the distance.
Congrats Darin! You definately motivate us to accel...uh...I mean coast!
I have been coasting more than ever since the skinny 'trailer' tires were mounted. I expect to be into the 60's this tank (will be a first for me). It is a lot of work to keep up with shut offs all the time.

Running into this concern during my daily commute. An evening spin is the only way to avoid this for me.

Nice, basjoos! Both you and Dan are still kicking my butt, percentage-wise, as zpiloto correctly points out. (Though I'm considering launching a protest based on overly optimistic Metro EPA hwy figures, relatively speaking...)
My daytime city trips are typically in the mid 80's on a regular basis, 90's if I try really hard and have good luck with traffic. I've got to work on my highway stuff, or stay off it, one or the other.
