More speed better mileage?

Had to really get on the throttle 2 days this tank. Thought for sure I was going to take a MPG penalty. Wound up getting slightly better MPG ?!?! I thought I had read on another forum that the 2.3l Rangers liked rpm's. It's almost making me rethink the rear gear change. I think I'll have to try a tank in 4th gear at 55 and only use 5th for freeway speeds. Should be about 2300 rpm for both gear ranges.

We'll see.
