The short answer is no.  You cannot do this with plain MRTG.


The long answer is that, if you use MRTG with the RRDtool backend, you can
then produce any graphs you want, provided you have the data available.  


Since MRTG normally polls in 5min intervals, a 1-hour graph would be very
chunky (only 12 samples).  You'd probably need to increase to an
'Interval:1' setting or even more frequent.  Then, a MRTG/RRD frontend like
Routers2 will be able to produce '6hour' graphs for you since this
corresponds to 1 data point per pixel at normal resolution.  By using rrdcgi
(with a very complex command line) you can automatically generate any graph
you want from the RRD files on the fly, although even at a 1-min polling
interval a 1-hour graph will only have 60 samples so would be a bit chunky.
