That would be a 5mph increase in average speed, not top speed. As a car guy, I often hear kids (anyone under 30 these days ) proclaim that they average at least 80 on the open road. Yet when asked how long it takes them to go from Dallas to Austin, about 200 miles, they will say 3 1/2 hours and be very surprised when I tell them that is an average speed of only 57.
