    Haha. I wish...

    One thing is clear though, high speed cruising requires a big(ish) engine.

    That was clear even to Toyota when they swapped the 1.8 liter in the new Prius instead of the former 1.5.

    My 1.6 is fine: I get a steady 50mpg on motorways when I'm aiming for 80-85mph, and 60mpg at the National Speed Limit: 70mph. It could do with a 6th gear though (70mph is at 2,300 rpm in 5th).

    Oh, we have the same in mind all right - it's just that over here, 100+ mph can get you a prison sentence.
