Thanks for the feedback, keep it coming!

Been shifting 2000-2400rpm (lower in higher gears, 1st and 2nd are deep and wide) under moderate acceleration which drops rpm to ~1500rpm. Sometimes shift lower or higher for lower/higher load.

In other news, the "Italian tune up" (driving up a hill with a trailer, revving it out then coasting down) seems to have freed up the VNT actuator which was sticking when I needed it most. That was fun, now back to earth, more civil driving. Expecting 38+mpg this tank despite the poor driving style. Go diesel!
