    Yeah, I find best economy for me is around 70-80kph. I can do some trips around Brisbane on 60-80kph stretches with few traffic lights and few hills averaging 7.5 to 8. Can't really get away with going 80 in the 100/110 zones though

    Indeed. That is a good speed for the amarok. If I go to the eastern part of norway, we've got som 100 zones and flatter roads, while we here west have 80 zones with narrow and hilly roads. My home-->work route starts at sea Level and ends at sea level, but on my 18km trip I peak at about 325 meters above sea level. Really good consumption on the way back Down, though! Your speed limits are why I feel there isn't much I can contribute with in the highway cruising speed thread...

    At what speed does the forumers usually start to engage 6th? Or is that for another thread? With our speeds I've noticed that I won't get any better consumption in sixth, 'cause the revs are too low.

    Ok. I cannot do that. Need at least 85-90 on the speedo and flat road before i feel comfy in sixth. And before it gives me more miles. I find that struggling the engine gives fewer miles.
