    Default Your Diesel: RPM at 120km/h

    What is your engine RPM at true 120km/h in the highest gear? Doesn't matter if you have changed final drive ratios or fitted a different tire diameter.

    Brand, model and engine?

    Defender Td5 - about 3100 RPM at 120. I don't go faster than that, because then I have to use earmuffs..........and it would be illegal............and somewhat of a death wish.

    On my Disco 2 Td5 Auto it's revving at 2750 rpm when at 120 km/h. The slightly bigger tyres mean the speedo reads true / GPS speed at 120 km/h.

    Rev counter does not work, and wheels no longer standard, so I bashed the figures into a calculator...

    Its been so long since I could do 120 - my memory is a bit weak - I think the 3.0 Ford ranger sits around 2800 rpm at gps 120 (its own speedo is rather optimistic)
