You'll be fine, with my 02 in fifth gear I'm pulling around 2800 rpms at about 70ish. That nets me ~23mpg on 400 mile trips to Idaho and back. Any faster and mileage is crippled, any slower and I fear I'll never get there.
Just take it easy, and be smart about stopping distances and speeds and you'll do fine.
