I never drive at a sustained cruising speed of 93. Usually, I only reach that speed when accelerating onto the freeway or passing a car (or cars) that are in my way. Then I cut it back to my normal cruising speed of around 75-85, which of course varies depending on traffic.
After a long drive on the freeway combined w/some city driving, I usually usually get around 3.2 m/kwh but I've seen the gauge drop to as low as 2.7 in the interim when I'm cruising at over 80 on short freeway only drives.
This "mileage" is confirmed when I fully recharge the battery which now gives me a mid-rage estimate of around 190 miles or almost exactly 3.2 m/kwh.
