Overdrive somewhat provides smoother drive too

what overdrive does is basically it has the same effect on an auto ,as it would on a stick if u were to go from 3rd to 5th... basically bogs the engine down so it doesnt have to rev so high to keep speed,

If i drive my mazda navajo around at 45mph in "D" the motor runs about 2600RPM, But when i shift it to overdrive(D with an O around it) it drops from that 2600RPM down to a nice 1200RPM,

out on the highway, at 85mph, in "D" It runs 4300RPM, Shift it into "OD" drops to 2900RPM
