How does your TT weights? Mine is 3700lb and I'm not able to go below 20l/100km staying in 4th speed because there is no more torque if I shift to the 5th! Is there a magic trick I should know?

Thanks!

There in no magic trick to gain 30%, i stay in sport mode and lock the transmission in the right gear to keep the engine turn 3500 rpm for maximum torque.when going uphill.

When I talk about long run, i talk about going from Osoyoos to Magog or La Manzanilla, Magog that is 4000km and over

Your gear is probably much lighter than mine because keeping the 4th gear at 3000rpm results into 20 liters / 100km for me..
