Re: good or bad economy?
What is your RPM at (I can sit in fifth gear on the highway @ 110km/h(approx 70miles/hour) ) ?
If you want to run at 70 MPH and you RPM's go to high you may loose MPG.
I know I get some of my best MPG in town. I am running 4.62's with a GRS1 and 33 TSL Radials,
with a 1600 16V. I got 24.5 on my last tank, the top speed on that tank was 50 MPH with most of the
driving in town. If I run 70 plus I loose a little becouse of the RPM's. On road trips (in the past) I have lost
1-2 MPG on average. Not sure now that the motor seems to be braking in (milage has been going up).
Just a thought.
