    Hey Guys, just curious to see what the optimal RPM/Mph is for Fuel MPG during highway cruise. 5spd V6. (ie. long road trips). I was thinking right around 2100Rpm 100km/hr (62MPH). Thanks.

    i usually drive between 60 and 65 mph. thats about 2000 rpm to 2250 rpm (V6 five-speed) if the roads are mostly flat i'll get about 420 miles to a tank which is almost 25mpg. Tire size; 245/75/16(stock) im sure after i get new tires (265/70) and wheels (17") it will go down somewhat, but i cant complain about my mpg
