Default How fast do they drive when they measure the MPG (Highway) for a car?

My family is buying a Honda Accord (Year 2000). I read that the MPG is 23-28, which is pathetic compared to my older 96 Civic's MPG. How fast do they drive when they measure MPG for highway?

I think the MPG they give is a theoretical figure and it is calculated at a speed of 56 mph. The Accord is a bigger car than the Civic and one should expect the fuel economy to reflect that.

the accord is more than likely a v6, and they go normal highway speeds, 55-65 depending on state, keep in mind, not freeway, highway.

About 55 mph. The worse gas mileage for the Accord is due to the heaviness and bigger engine.
