ok cool, good to know on the overdrive. Yea I know the 4cyl has only like 100hp, but I'm wondering if in stick form it would get better mpg towing that light of weight down the freeway at 70 or under than the 4.0? Which has like 160hp I think. Like am I so underpowered that it will only get worse? Or I'm underpowered if I want to go anywhere quickly?

What about the 3.0? And should I ditch the stick shift altogether? I think I'd get better mpg, and I enjoy it more, especially if the autos are weak...
