Nathan Okie Huntington, West Virginia - 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser
Nathan was towing a heavy boat with his Land Cruiser. The gas mileage was terrible and to make 60 mph in 5th gear, he pretty much had to floor the accelerator the whole way. Now he wonders whether he'd have been better off in 4th gear at higher rpm. Tom and Ray say yes--in 5th gear the engine generates less power.
