Same here. I shift to 5th at 30 & then maintain unless I'm climbing a steepish hill and/or trying to accelerate more to better blend with traffic (like a freeway on-ramp). 30 mph in 5th is about 1350 rpm in my car. In previous tests, that showed as my best mpg speed too (70 to 72 mpg in 2-way tests)
