Is the significantly higher highway mileage due to a taller high gear?

The direct injection and it not being an In-line is helping it quite a bit. The 350 has 306 horsepower and gets 28 mpg. Very good for a 6 cylinder. 8 cylinders can do that because of the torque on the highway. VERY good for a 6 though.

the gear ratio was changed dramatically in the manual for performance gains.
