You are right when you say the driving style affects gas mileage. I have a older Buick LeSabre with the 3.8 engine. I had to make a 200 mile run to a work location and come right back. It was all highway driving.
As a test I drove there at 60mph, and returned at 70mph. The different was 7 mpg or close to 20% less fuel.
Same thing with pulling away gently or/and letting off the gas before the stop sign. My car will coast about 2 miles before the stop sign.
If every one in America would get smart, we could probably import 10% less fuel every day. HUGE SAVINGS in the big picture.
