If you change gears between 4th, 5th and 6th on the freeway, you'll be able to break it in at various rpms, and gears. Might not be ideal, but it'll beat cruising in the same gears at the same rpms.

I'm not 100% sure on the Elise's gear ratio's, but I suspect it's semi-comparable to my bug's (both 4 cyl. 6 speeds). In my bug, 4th goes between 40-60mph at 2500-4500rpms, and 6th can go up to 100 without going over 4500rpms. That leaves loads of play between 3 gears at freeway speeds.
