   Any speed at which the engine will pull it comfortably. I.E.: 40 mph
on level terrain in 4th gear.  I used to kick in the overdrive as a rev
extender in 2nd and 3rd, like shifting gears.

  Not if the OD is working right.  It ought to kick in and out on
demand.  That's the beauty of a full-electric unit.  Say you're going up
a steep hill in OD and the engine starts lugging down.  You flick the
switch, the thing shifts down and awaaayy you go!
