Use cruise control the entire way while going the posted speed limit. I get about 21 mpg that way.

Nothing better than cruising and resting your feet with the warm air on

I intend to use the cruise control hell yes!!! Lol But I believe the posted speed limit in some areas on the I-10 are 85mph,, is it safe to run an engine at that speed for a long period of time with 110 degree weather though the deserts of New Mexico and Arizona?
