I would bet that its just cleaner fresher air , less lead (bullet) pollution.. but then we do tend let a few fly. speaking of which 80-90 is flying and you are punching an ugly hole (any similarities are purely coincidental) in the air and dragging a lot of dead weight behind, so yeah, your gonna burn up some fuel.. cruisers are for cruising , anything less than 70 qualifies.
