Lets face it, you are not going to blast down the M3 at 90 mph. But you will manage 70 on the flat bits. It's a bit noisy and after about an hour and half you will want to get out for walk. But it is do-able.
If you have a Fairway with overdrive, you will find a little square button somewhere on the centre console that switches on the overdrive. When overdrive is on, the green light at the top right of the dashboard will go out, and you will feel the gearbox shift into "fifth gear". In fact it changes the ratio for all the gears in the gearbox, a bit like changing the front cog on a racing pushbike. When you get off the motorway, just press the button again and the light will come on, and the gearbox will shift back to normal. Another way to think of it is like this - If the green light is ON, you are in sport mode...
