You won't regret it I can honestly say!This forum sold me on on my purchase soon.
A question I have is with a mt what do you think the RPM is at 65 MPH in 6th gear?
That's ... odd ...A reviewer from the hypermiling community lists these RPM's in 6th gear:
50 mph - 2,050 RPM
60 mph - 2,450 RPM
70 mph - 2,900 RPM
The RPMs would change depending on the GEAR you are in and the question was what are the RPMs in 6th gear. but on the CVT transmission, the mode you are in will affect the ratio that the transmission chooses. but at a certain point while cruising you will reach the limit of the CVT transmission and that will be the minimum RPMs for that speed.Dont the RPMs change depending on the driving mode that you're in?
It sucks to have an odd memory. I can recall threads where tibits of automotive knowledge was shared. Yet I can barely remember an email from yesterday at work :blush:GoHuskies....you the man. :hi5: I can't remember have the things I read and even less where I read it!!!
Yah, I remember discounting that post when it was originally posted. Mine are up near 3krpm at 65mph. Maybe 2700 like the last poster said, as I'm usually going at about 70, which is definitely just over 3krpm.That's ... odd ...
I'm going to have to check on my way home, but I could have sworn my RPMs at highway speeds were higher than that.
I remember wishing there was a magical 7th gear to save me some gas on the highway.
