RE: What speed you like to drive?
When cruising at 105kmph we doing 4000rpm then not much can stopthe 2.1 at that purrrrr

With the 2.1 i find 3800-4200 to be most economical as that when its at perfect equilibrium.

What size tires are you using?
The faster you go, the more wind resistance you have, i believe 80km/h should give you the best consumption with a wbx because it has plenty torque down there...

Hi

I still have 14" wheels. I find that if you cruise at 80kmph then you have to "trap" it whrn you hit an incline. Wheras when you do 100kmph then im barely toucchin the accelerator. Yes i believe that wind resistense is a factor but keeping your revs constant also plays a massive factor in fuel effieciency. I think keeping your revs constant also make you engine work less overall. as when cruising at 80 and having to trap it to get up a hill.

Juat my 2c from my own experience

205/80 R14 stock syncro size

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life

Thanks Stuart
Dazz, it makes sense because you have a lot more momentum at that speed and you are running above the peak torque which is around 3000rpm

What is the actual(gps) measured speed difference compared to the stock 205/70R14?

On GPS when im doing 100 then speedo reflects 101.

At 120on speedo then gps states 118. So my speedo is very accurate. My aftermarket tach shows 4000 at 100 and 4550 at 120 and Mr Stuart says thats bang on.

I want to go to 15s but im scared that if the revs drop by 300 then toe cruise at 3800 i would be doing more like 108ish? So not sure how this will affect my ration on the highway as i dont want to use the volume control lever to maintain my 105kmph.

Anybody with 2.1 and stock diffs and running 15s? Just dont want 100kmph to be out of peak torque is all.
