Can you average that over an entire tank? It seems pretty reasonable that a Corvette should get decent fuel economy... it surely doesn't take that much horsepower to push an aerodynamically slippery car with a relatively low weight at 70 mph. But it still doesn't seem likely that you could get 37+ at that speed over 350 to 400 miles in a repeatable way. 29-32 I'd absolutely believe though.

I've never paid attention to what the RPMs are at 70 MPH, but I know off the top of my head for 75 MPH it's:

Mitsu: 3,100 rpm (4.56 rear axle ratio)
Grand Marquis: ~1,900 rpm (3.08 rear axle ratio)
Envoy: 2,200 rpm (3.73 rear axle ratio)

Not going to be much of a difference for 5 MPH.

Theoretical since I've never gone that fast in my 1952 Chevy Truck but it'd be 3300RPM. That's with a 3.11 rear end.

About 2900 RPM in a 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX 5-sp. 3.9 final drive ratio. Hovers right around where the turbo kicks in.

My 1995 Integra GS-R was more about 3350 RPM. Some felt that it could use a 6th gear.

The 330Ci Bimmer (perf. package, which has a different gear ratio than the regular 330ci AFAIK):
(NOTE: I think the ACTUAL speed is 2 MPH LESS than what the speedo shows - that's how it's calibrated; I forgot to compensate for that)

AT 70 MPH:


AT 80 MPH:
