When to drive in High vs. Low...

I've been told by a few people that driving in Low whenever possible will help the belt last longer, but I can't bring myself to drive faster than 10 or 12 mph in Low because the RPM's sound too high. so the question is... when is it good to drive in Low, and how fast can you drive in Low? Is it really going to help the belt last longer to drive in Low?

If your in tough technical stuff, going under 10 mph then low is the correct gear. I will stay in low when I'm in an area that I know I'll be needing it frequently. On short runs I've gone as fast as 20 mph in low with no problems. Fuel mileage is poor in low, but for tough situations it will save your belt. Common sense is your best guide. I use high probably 95% of the time.
