I'd like to ask what RPM your 3.2s run at on the highway going 65 MPH?

My 3.0 w/ PMOs had the timing adjusted last fall and I seem to be getting worse milage. But I havn't really been able to know MPG exactly since my speedo was way off. Just got the speedo back from North Hollywood and it's dead nuts on. My first tank full and relatively mild mannered driving gave me 17.9 MPG. I'll be curious what it gets on a trip. With a 901 trans and 50 series tires, the engine turns 3100 RPM at 60 MPH. Which brings me back to the original question since I'm thinking about a taller 5th gear.
