Correction to my earlier post saying my '97 HX needs 2400-2500 rpm or better for lean burn. Since Jan. 2012 have been adding Marvel Mystery Oil to the gas and have regularly had lean burn down to about 46 mph in 5th gear which is well below 2400 rpm. Something like 2000 rpm but I never ID'd the lower rpms limiit for lean burn. You can see my thread
Coast long and prosper.
