    the engine has such small displacement it does need to be reved but it also likes it better I find. Much smoother gear transition when you rev it more so. I take it to 4k from first to second then shift about 28-3200 depending on speed. Even at crusining speeds 60-80kmh I find it likes being in 4th appose to fifth, even though tthe revs are higher it seems to get better millage.
