You can gain half a tank of diesel just by dropping a few hundred revs? :lol:

Thats what I was thinking, seems there more to the 6-speed box than meets the eye... :supafrisk:

I tested my 6-speed RPM's at 70MPH last night on the way home.........2150 rpm :o probably 200 rpm more than this C5 unit (if anyone's interested :lol: :roll: )

That's pretty close considering yours is petrol-engined. 8)
I note the Scandanavian stealth buggy develops 320 Nm from 1500 - 4800 RPM, so should still be reasonably sprightly in top from about 60?
Mine doesn't really want to rub it in below 70 in 6th.

Yes is does pull well from low revs, it drives like a powerful Diesel and it very happy pootling around at 1500 rpm.

Where Diesel cars hit a bit of a 'wall' at higher speeds the Eastbourne's brake horse power comes into play and it keeps pushing on................and gives you 24mpg to say thanks :frown:

Whether the top speed's 140 or 150-odd doesn't seem terribly important in the overall scheme of things. :supafrisk:
I'm realistically expecting to see nearer 48mpg. :)

Sorry Lou, my relative geography's a bit screwed up - didn't think of Accrington as 'local' to you. :oops:

Next time maybe?

Results in from the first brim to brim tankful - 711 miles / 68.8l = 46.9 mpg. 8)

This won't seem exceptional to you HDi owners, but for a remapped 2.2 that's been 'exercised' a little, it's pretty impressive.
The original dogmobile tended to get refueled after 620 - 650 miles, yesterday morning, I'd clocked up 645, with a predicted range of 93 miles, so enough for a 'free' 60 mile round trip to work. Getting > 10 miles / litre is new too. :D

Obvious question; based on before and after MPG, what is the break even point for the gear box?
Remember - it only takes a few inches of water to drown a 406 don't make the same mistake I made! The V6 Exec is no more.
