Tire pressure

My door sticker says "normal" tire pressure is 36 psig all around.
I typically go about 10 % higher for a firmer ride and a possible slight MPG increase.
Right now I'm running 40 psig. (Tires are safe to 51 psig)
I'll go back down to 36 - 38 once the ice and snow season settles in around here.

Interested to know what everyone else is running.

As stated on the door jam - 36 PSI. Is the MPG difference real or imagined (ie is it measure able?).

I try to always stay towards the top side, too. In my F-150, when I am towing, I go to near the absolute maximum pressure. In my sports cars I try to stay right at the recommended pressure. No matter what, one DOESN'T want to run low pressure at all.
