2008 Legacy Ltd GT vs Outback Ltd LL Bean (both w/VDC)

I've heard that careful control of RPMs and such can bring a good MPG rating...as in much better than the 18/24 rating (well, maybe 1 or 2 MPG better). I was wondering if anyone has experience? I've got a 100-mile daily commute, and it'd be REALLY nice if I can get better than 400 miles per tank and stay safe...they're not always good about clearing the interstates I take.

Besides, one has to go up to the Legacy GT to get nav...so I'd probably get the Outback LL Bean Limited as the other option. With the long commute, comfort is pretty important, as is mileage. I'd consider a lower-level Legacy if it was available with Nav (not as interested in the system as the screen though...I just think the dash looks dumb with a bin there). What functions besides the Nav system does the touch-screen do? Maybe it'd be worth it to just get the regular Legacy Ltd w/VDC. They're not real clear on what additional stuff there is, just "additional vehicle functions" and the trip computer.

I'd be trying to get Sirius for whichever one I get. I know someone at the Subie dealer, so I'm not really considering other brands, though I know the Accord is a pretty sweet ride too
