You can get high MPG with a small engine running at it's most efficient RPM, but there's usually not much additional power available - just enough to hold a moderate speed.

For larger engines that doesn't work as well, and you usually go for the lower RPMs and smallest throttle openings that you can get without excessive bogging and the need to open the throttle significantly.
