I think Subaru's recommended tire pressure is 26 or 29psi. Regardless, if you can handle a little bit rougher ride, 33-35psi will get you better mileage.

Best 8.27 L/100K - Combined City/Hwy Cycle
Worst 9.76 L/100K - All City Cycle.
For our USA friends that is:
all figures were obtained using 98RON fuel and I fill my tank to the brim everytime and then give it a little bit of stick on the way home to "burn off" the excess.
I also try to fill my car in the early morning when the fuel is more dense, although that is not always possible when travelling.
I will be doing a 3,000 km (1865 miles) round trip soon so I will be able to give a better idea of my Hwy figure.

Miles: 847 (US)
Avg MPG: 28 (US)
Hwy Cruise Speed: 70 mph (US) less through towns enroute of course.
I used Shell Ultimate which is 98RON down here and ran with the A/C on for the whole trip.
