Your experience flies in the face of wind resistance. Common sense tells you that the wind resistance is much less at 65 than it is at 80 and wind resistance is the main contributor to poor fuel mileage. Your wallet, not mine. I prefer to get good fuel mileage rather than driving at warp factor one. Again, the minimum speed on any Interstate highway is 45 (if you bother to read the speed limit signs, don't matter what the top posted speed is, that is a Federal law.The mileage difference is minimal, in my experience.
65 works for me just fine. Never been in that big of a hurry anyway. I just leave in time to get to my destination on time.
