I have figured out with the help of MPGuino that LB is hardly what I thought it would be.

I am certain that a VX ratio transmission would return far greater MPG than LB does.

I do now know that I'm much better off selecting the next gear to lower rpm's vs staying in a lower gear to keep in LB.
1998 LX with a full HX swap + VX transaxle.
