Will driving at, say, 90 mph for an hour or so really put A LOT of strain on the engine? (given that the engine has been well maintained?)

That was over 4 years and 110,000 miles ago and I'm still running strong with 167,000.
I often run around 90 for an 1/2 to an hour.
I did find that with the the 2.2 I use more gas when running around 90. For every 30 minutes at 90mph I lose about 10 miles of my 300 mile tank.
I have had it over 100 in shorter bursts.

I recently drove to Frankfurt from Copenhagen, eight hours of motorway, crusing at 95mph - 4500rpm. 12 year old EJ22 with 180k miles on it. Didn't even use any oil! And back again
I regularly visit 120mph, but mileage drops too far.....I have seen an indicated 130mph
90 is not stressful at all, keep up the good work!
(Mobil 1, 5W-50, 6k intervals)

Subarus are TOUGH. They are designed to be run hard.
