Default 03 Turbo 5spd-man, fact-stock RPM's@75mph

Hello, I have an 03 turbo w 5spd manual trans, all-trac.
The vehicle has the 17in chrome turbo rims w 205 50 17 tires. I believe that is the recommended size tire. Is it normal for the engine to run (while in 5th gear) at 3000 rpm's going approx-75-80mph? The tires are brand new and dont really want to purchase taller tires but it seems the engine would be working pretty hard at that rpm range.

Also what is the all-trac? both front tires spinning like positraction? Would i get better gas mileage if i turn it off? Thanks

3k rpm is about right

PT have 17-25mpg. The slower you drive, the better gas mileage.

Here's how PT's traction control works.

Traction Control

Watch out for anchor engine mounts!!
