It's geared too low.
At cruising speed the engine is revving. It's geared to be an excellent off-roader and that is a setback during higher speed travelling.
Mine will be in 6th if I'm driving a steady 45 MPH. On the highway it revs like my pickup truck, which is definitely not geared for the highway.
My pickup isn't as comfortable for the long trips so we'll be taking the Touar-rev.
If you want higher mileage get the Diesel. If you do the math you can figure out how many decades it will take to pay off the difference in vehicle price with the fuel savings!
:bored: more than 5000lbs, what can you expect. mine gets 18.4mpg on highway. kicks a** though when I floor it, especially in sport!
