What do you cars get?

Subary Legacy wagon - 44mpg
Chevy Venture van - 42mpg

EDIT: Just as clarification, I meant the highest for flat ground while on the accelerator, not the highest gas mileage using technique.
There is no flat ground nearby so I coast out of habit. But the best I've gotten keeping the car above 40 is about 38mpg, using 40mpg as top speed and gliding down to 20mph I was able to get it up to 47.55.

Maybe there is something wrong with my Subaru???

Mine is a 2.2L, maybe yours is the 2.5L version? I also disabled AWD on mine, but there are no other modifications

2.7L/100km over a 249.2 mile course, mostly repeated out and back loops on interstate with a semi-urban access drive to and from the start-finish and the highway. The 87.1 mpg on B100 biodiesel was converted to a BTU equivalent and then to a gasoline mpg equivalent to allow comparison of different fuels in the competitor's vehicles. The 2003 Tour de Sol official 83MPG(e) reflects this gasoline equivalent fuel efficiency.
Next best was 77+ mpg, again on B100, over a 500+ mile course in 2005.

Friendly reminder to give the highest value at steady cruise, instead of long-distance averages
