This very topic was discussed in the LA Times last week. A case in point was a 92 Honda Civic routinely getting 50 mpg and over 60 by employing hypermiling tricks.

Back in the mid 80s I remember a friend with a Sentra wagon who routinely got 45 mpg with four adults and the AC going on a hot summer day.
