What's the 'proper' setting for engaging the overdrive...in-town driving...on or off?

there really isn't a proper sequence, it is really up to you and your driving habits, however, the overdrive shouldn't work until you hit I think 40mph. I usually don't use mine till I was taking a long stretch in town or not. Short stretches I just ran 3rd gear. I also hit overdrivee about 50. Hope this helps

The response is appreciated...that's basically what my Dad told me...long ago. Didn't really know what changes the years have/had changed.
