Wow, that is amazing. No wonder it can achieve 30mpg on the freeway.

Was toying with a camera mount today... seems too wobbly to take video, but pictures at high shutter speed come out ok...

IIRC, 2100-2300 RPM. I can't remember exactly, but it's somewhere around there. I don't do much sustained 70 MPH driving, unfortunately.

About 2500 in the Silverado with 4.56 gears. Horrible fuel mileage.

3300 - 3400 in the Fit. Used to be annoyingly loud at those RPMs but seemed quieter now that I'm using PU. Could just be placebo effect. Really wish it had a 6th gear.

2500 in the Taurus

About 2400 in the Dakota, which has 3.90 gears.
About 7100 on the Burgman.
Not sure on the Caddy, which has no tach.

F150 @ 1950 rpm. That has a 3.73 rear end, so it's only getting about 18-19 mpg unloaded. (not to mention it's a crew cab)

Saab @ 2400 rpm. That will reliably get 32-33 mpg at that speed.

C3 tops out at 39 mph…and the Kawasaki at 62!

In my subie with slightly larger than stock wheels, I believe it's between 3100 and 3200 at 70 in 5th gear, maybe closer to 3100.

In normal weather and wind's, level cruise, manifold is usually around 2/3rds of an atmosphere, meaning it's got around 50% more power without downshifting if I were to go floor it.
