Ironically it also is the speed where my xB gets really good mileage also. Must be an engine load and gearing sweet spot. Next you pop it in neutral and coast down and rack up some extra mileage. BTW floor it and see what it does i.e. check out the max speed.

I forgot and left my simulator running all night and all day up until a few minutes ago. It's reading 826 miles and the mpg is at 66.0 and the speed is at 39 mph. The current mpg is at 66.4. It could be an addicting little simulator.

I just got a 79.0 after 3.9 miles and the battery was at just a tick or two over 50%. I could see this as being very addictive!

Interesting little toy.

1150 - 1200 RPM in B mode nets great results at constant speed, and battery goes up to 80
