Highway MPGs

The truck info is in the sig. In NYC right now (leaving tomorrow morning) and trying to get some input on everyone's MPGs. I know there will be some "truth stretchers" but I need some honest feedback. ON the way up here (I-78) I was averaging 60-65 mph @ ~1900 rpm. I noticed the overhead console was showing the 12.1-12.9 range. When I gassed it ab it and avergaed the 70-75 mph @ ~ 1900-2100 rpm, the console read 14.1-14.4 mpg...... does this sound about right? What do you guys average in speed and mpg for the best?

btw.. only intake and 3.5" straight pipe, no tunes

my 95 would get 16-22 depending on how I drove it. RPMs over 2K sucks the fuel much faster it seemed. I got 11 MPGs towing my 5th wheel RV at about 75-80 MPH. if I run 65 and under and ease into it I could run 20 MPG no problem. but I have a lead foot and like to drive fast so I usually averaged about 16-18.
driving style make a HUGE difference.
