You need to spec your motor/tranny combo so we can give accurate comparisons. :)

tailwind, slopes, and guages really arent as accurate as you think they are.

in my 5sp i do 75-80 @ 3000

Acutally they are! If i'm going 60km/h onh my speedo my gps says i'm going 60. If i'm going exactly 200km/h on my speedo, my gps says i'm going exactly 200. I don't see where the speedometer error comes in to place.

My gps also reads the same speed in a couple of friends cars. So I'm guessing its accurate.

I just took a long to trip, about 500 miles round trip. From Fairfield, CA to Visalia, CA and back. There is not a damn thing to see on that trip, anyway. I had my cruise set on 90mph and it was at 3000k. I had to take a bouble take but yeah, 90mph=3000k. My mpg sucked tho. 27.7 for the whole trip.
