The only time you should be in that RPM range is briefly on your way to a shift point. If you are cruising at the range you are lugging the engine. I am never in 5th gear unless it is on the freeway. There is another point around 4800 or so that is an LT quirk. Kind of a buzz. 3,000 to 3,500 is a good cruising rpm. Just remember that first gear is good to 62 mph (as that is when you will hit the rev limiter). Enjoy!
