Fifth gear is like overdrive, it is meant for flat open highway driving. It is a gas saving gear so that you can travel at highway speeds at low rpm and your engine is just too small to use that gear at any other time. So use it on flat or slightly down sloped roads, fourth should be your normal gear for from about 45 to 65.
