high rev gauge

Recommended Posts

hi all 

       just need some extra info if poss when im in 5th gear and doing 70mph my rev gauge seems to be running a little higher than other cars ive had its sitting around the the 2225 / 2500 range or

2.1/4 / 2.1/2 rev's on the clock can any who has a 2.0 diesel do a quick test for me or if there's is any different  maybe its just me but it does seem a bit high at this speed range and for the size of car 

thanks ron

Hi Ron,

 

I don't know whether this helps, but at 69 mph my rev counter sits at 1995 rpm --- 6th gear.

 

The reason for the curious speed is that when I am on a long run I go for fuel economy and the second turbo cuts in at 2000rpm.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.
