Does it shift somewhere between 120 km/h - 130 km/h? Seems really high for a gear but who knows for a car in Europe. The higher gears tend to be taller and you'll notice when you get to maxing out the gear because you'll see a big jump in the MPG's when it does shift. It might seem big, but with the turbo and possibly gearing it may just be a sweet spot in the engine tuning. My Cherokee will jump about 4-5MPG's when I push it just past that last gear. Just one of the reasons the scangauge II is worth the money. Finding those sweet spots without it is almost impossible.

20mpg city/30mpg highway or bust! Check out my mods so far
