I'm taking all gaps up to 50 in case anyone is interested in extending other ranges. 60 looks a soft target, as are all 0mod30 cases

What I find gratifying about this search is that the higher you...

Using 2^30 as the major set of prime factors in N suggests N= e^75.33 corresponding to 5e32. At this type of value of N, the ratio again drops below 1, last seen with N=20
