5thgear or 6th gear and why?
ive heard that 5th gear is more gas efficient, but the rpms goes above 4000 when i reach 80. and when im on 6th its much lower. if im not mistaken the lower the rpm the more gas efficient correct?
Depends if you're trying to accelerate or maintain 80mph.
This is quite elementary...I think you know the answer.
