Awesome trip to East Texas last weekend ... about 450 miles, but during the ride, I started wondering why the gearing is set for the 1800cc engine to run about 3,000 RPM at 65 mph. Seems like there is more than enough hp for an overdrive gear so that a comfortable 65 mph cruise would be bout 2000 rpm.

I'm thinking that my 40.4 mpg would turn into something in the high 40's!

any discussion or thoughts?

There were many hopes and desires about the 2012 model. Some wanted a sixth gear ( my desire ) others wanted an electric windshield, etc. Honda decided to keep everyone happy by disappointing everyone.
