Question by : Why Don’t They Have Huge Gears In Cars to Save Gas?
I don’t get it. I have a manual car with 5 gears, and of course in 5th gear, it cruises on the highway at the lowest RPM’s, and gets the best gas mileage. Why don’t they just make cars with 6th and 7th gears, and etc. so you can just keep shifting up and get better gas mileage. Is the gearbox not big enough? I don’t understand? Thanks

The car companies are stupid and do what’s most cost-effective for themselves.
