Yep if your getting to 90 you have all your gears they just get loud around 65-70 and 80 feels like its gonna blow... no way 3rd is gonna make it to 90
The cars realistically will never get better than 20 mpg... and your probably used to driving a typical 4-speed with overdrive, which allows the engine to save fuel and lower the rpms, while a straight 4-speed does not have overdrive and is about the equivalent to driving in D instead of DO
