Totally Useless Info:


Trundling along the country lanes yesterday in the FT2.8TD as you do I found out the following:

2000rpm in 5th gear = 50mph
2000rpm in 4th gear = 40mph
2000rpm in 3rd gear - 30mph

I now I'm sad Sad but it could be useful if the speedo were to fail Lol


I assume you had a 60mph tail wind! ShokShok


Since you said that i've watched the dials in my sportrak, 2000 revs gives about 20mph in 3rd, 30mph in 4th and 35mph in 5th. I'd have thought those speeds were more like 3000rpm, in a sporty anyway. (obviously being a petrol, it does have higher revs anyway)
