1994 jeep with 4 liter engine and 4 speed tranny with overdrive turns about 2400 at that speed. Will only get 20 mpg or so while cruising at 50 mph. Goes down at higher speeds.
Harley turns about 2500 at that speed in 6th gear.

Thanks for the tip! Everything I have read about Motorcraft oils here on BITOG is nothing but positive. It is really a great oil for a great price.

In the CVLX its about 1800RPM with 2.73s and larger 255/45R18 tires.
Its going to get 4.10s here in a month or so. It would bring it up to about 2600RPM.

The CVPI also has 3.27s as your '09 so it is the same 2000RPM.
