Is there a general graph or curve plotting MPG at different speeds?

There very well may be but it would only apply to the particular vehicle it was written for. There is no general graph. Many factors determine MPG. Weight, engine size, aerodynamics, terrain, city or highway, just to name a few. Yes, there is a bell curve which depending on your transmission (number of gears, gear ration etc), tops off usually at about 45 mph. You will get the best mileage at the lowest rpm in the highest gear.

The data on a demand schedule can be plotted on a demand curve. Often, a demand schedule will be created before the creation of a demand curve, so as to allow for greater accuracy when plotting the demand curve.

an increase in price level would lead to a fall in AE, vice versa. So by plotting those points out, you can derive an AD curve

It will show you whether it is a constant rate or if it speeds up or slows down.
