Question about 2010 Ford Ranger
It is immaterial when the over drive is to be used
If the constant shifting is annoying you then switch it off
The over drive is just that
an extra high final gear in the transmission to reduce the engine rpms at high speed to save fuel . It can be set for automatic engagement or turned of if pulling heavy trailers or caravans or carrying full loads and so save wear on the transmission

I would only use the overdrive when traveling over 50 mph or 80 kph. Your gear box will last longer before a rebuild will be required.

Being automatic, your vehicle selects overdrive when conditions are correct. The programming within the computer is designed to do this, and adjusts other engine functions accordingly. If you disable the o/d, it is possible to gain a bit more performance but more often than not you will be prone to forgetting to switch it back on when its needed. Overall this will hurt your fuel consumption and cost you $. One exception is that on many jeeps, going uphill they tend to stay in o/d too long. Most times you can "downshift" out of o/d by lightly touching the brake pedal.
Simply put, leave well enough alone... You can save more fuel by anticipating stops and coasting, (foot off gas) when approaching a light that is or will shortly be red, and not accelerating hard off stops. Just because someone writes it does not mean it's true!!!
