If you are labouring the engine then you are more than likely using more fuel than you would be keeping it in 4th or even 3rd gear. If when you try to accellerate the car seems like its struggling to get going then you are definately labouring the engine and should drop a gear.

Hmmm... is there a PDF version of any of the manuals online anywhere ?

I never got one with my car, and wouldn't mind hearing the 'official' figures on a few things...

Nothing specific, just general things, like tyre pressures (for petrols), and that bit about what gears to drive in at what speed would be interesting.
