View Full Version : RPM's while driving

Well it has been sometime since i have had my car and been able to drive. While driving, I noticed how easy it was to be driving 40mph in second gear.

While cruising I was taking note of RPM's. I would be cruising at 50-60mph in 4th gear at around 3000-3200 RPM, what would be the optimum, 5th gear and lower RPM's or continue what I am doing.
What should I be looking for while just cruising the same speed for distances in and around town, as far as RPM's go?
