I wouldn't rely only on the numbers given to you by the adapter
statistics. Try to run Iperf to see how much you can get out of your
tunnel. You could also try to disable the (lzo-)compression to see
where you max out your bandwidth. 
With the exception of latency (or QoS) I don't see anything that would
make openvpn not use the totality of your bandwidth.
