I turn my engine on....pull out of the marina and 5-12 hrs later having run at the same rpm and generally the same load all that time, then pull it to idle when I dock and shut it off.

Trucks are in high gear when rolling down the highway at cruise speed (50-80).....if they pulled away from the loading dock got pushed to speed by a helper and cruised flat lands for the whole trip with no stops and coasted into the next loading dock...I bet they would have one gear.

What's the diff?
