I drive around town and under 45mph in 5th gear all the time. I have no complaints about my gas mileage and I don't have to lug the engine down or put up with the continued up and down shifting. And thanks for reminding me about reading the manual--your gentle reminder reminded me of why I got divorced.

it was a good time... he jumped me, but when i started pulling i was pulling hard, the kids stare was pretty blank when i blew past him on the 2 lane on ramp to the highway, the girls were both staring at my truck and smiling. i hope my big fat dually rubber mud flaps looked great swinging in the wind as i pulled away.....something tells me he called his daddy and told him he needs a new 5 series or some forced induction.....the car sure looked hot, but it didnt have the balls to support its look....honestly, i was shocked at how hard i pulled him, i thought for sure he would be more competitive. my wife found it rather amusing as well.....
