At 75-80 mph you will feel any unusual drags on the truck from wind, inclines, etc. You are using a huge amount of horsepower to overcome wind resistance. It seems the sweet spot for us is around 60-65 mph. Feels like you are going somewhere without overstressing the truck. And, it does not suck down the gas! Also, I do not care if everyone is passing me when the speed limit is 80. Slow lane and you just have to watch the idiots behind you and not ahead of you!!!
Mpg's will decrease from about 9 to 6 in a headwind or crosswind. If you do not believe me, drive west through Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, or Colorado. Kind of like driving up long hills.
