I wrote the program. The first version was on a Commodore Vic-20 like 100 years ago

What I don't understand is I thought the LS Camaros had a tall gear for fuel economy... I thought that taller gears would get lower RPMs when cruising on the freeway?

I tested to make sure - at 80mph I'm at 2300-2400 rpms.

So wouldn't that mean I have a shorter gear? I really thought an economy geared v6 would have lower RPMs at 80mph than the SS...?

I think on the V6 the rpms are that high to compensate for the power compared to the SS. You have 2 less cylinders to feed @2300 rpms so it still gets better MPGs..if it could do it, it would get crazy MPGs @1800!!

Yeah I guess so - when I was driving a Corvette 427 a month ago I was shocked when I shifted into 6th gear and took it to 80mph and saw I was sub 2000 rpms...

It's the transmission gears that are lower in the V6.

Around 2K+, last time I was on I-10 in West Texas speed limit was 85mph. Numerous cars pulled over by DPS.
