Lowering your speed is the key to better mpg
Indeed. Observations in my TL...
60-65 mph: 36 mpg
70-75 mph: 32 mpg
75-80 mph: 28 mpg
Mileage drops rather quickly above 75 mph.

I'm 57 and don't drive very hard, but even I was surprised how much better my mpg became when I slowed taking off from stoplights. Using very steady gas pedal, I improved by 2-3 mpg. I found out a very long time ago that acceleration can be very successful with extremely little push on the pedal.
