6th gear 75 mph at about 4000rpm. Thats back and forth to work for 55 miles one way.

In the city, I always keep it above 3500. No sense in having to bog the engine when I really need to move, and around here, I always have to move to stay alive in this traffic.

On the highway, I just stick to 6th. Got plenty of juice to hit 150 and back without shifting a gear.

Cruising speed 5000-5500. 100mph in a seventy limit is an automatic 1 month ban here so I keep below when just cruising.
