The vette has something like a 0.50 ratio on that tallest gear, so the engine is virtually off until you hit seriously high speeds.
Interestingly the Sienna has pretty tall gearing too, it seems to have about half the revs of my Miata's 6th gear. Mazda has super-short, tightly spaced gearing.

Averaged almost 26 mpg over a 5000+ mile trip (Baltimore - Yellowstone). Got as high as 28.5 mpg across the high plains of Wyoming and would have done better at less than 75-80 mph. Overall, the 2010 delivers better highway mpg than my 1998 Sienna XLE but worse mpg elsewhere. Using Mobil 1 synthetic 5W-30 and running the OEM tires at about 37 psi.
I've found the on-board mpg calculator in the Sienna fairly accurate; unlike the one in my 03 'Vette which typically reads 1 mpg too high.
