more or less closed throttle at 30MPH in 5th? not a whole lot more load on the engine than idling out of gear.
Right I only open the throttle enough to maintian speed to the next down hill. Never floor in those conditions that obviously wouldn't be smart. LOL

and Yea the idle is below 1000rpm I'll look tonight and see but I think it's like 750ish IIRC.

Thanks for the input guys
