Got 31 mpg on a 300 mile highway trip from StLouis, MO to Topeka, KS with the air on and no passengers. The posted speed limit was 70 in MO and 75 in KS.

A few weeks later, and about 4 tanks, I average about 24 mpg and the best I've seen is about 35 highway for a 140 mile highway-only trip.

My v8 sport trac peaked 20 mpg with 410 gears and 32" tires, but not in my normal way of driving. Drove like a grandma, and only did 45 mph cause of rpms. If I can keep it below 2k rpm, I get better mpg. If I didnt tow so much, I'd drop to a 327 or even 308. If I supercharge it like I'm wanting, I'll drop gears...
