Efficiency

Sorry if wrong place BUT... I have a question. As most new Volt drivers are... I'm becoming obsessed with the best mileage. I will be about 75/25 electric/"fuel" miles. What is the optimal speed to "drive gas"? I'm sure highway is probably the most efficient time to use hold correct? Is there an optimal speed? 60, 65, 97, 70? I'm sure flat vs hills, slow grades vs steep all make a difference I'm just currious. Btw I've got about 70miles on gas and I'm at 40.2 :) around 215ish overall mpg with somewhere around 350 miles +-20.

Loving it btw :)

Last Saturday 135 mile round trip with our 2016 Volt. Returned home with 70 miles electric used the remainder on gas for 52+ mpg on just gas, Prius Territory,. Temp was 58-64, dry roads, speeds on Highway 101 from my Tillamook Oregon fishing trip and back ranged from 60 mph to 25-45mph when driving in small towns in city limits.
