2000-3000 RPM 188 min
3000-4000 RPM 248 min
4000-5000 RPM 140 min
5000-6000 RPM 38 min
ABOVE 6000 RPM, 4 min
Id spent 50% oif the 20 hours at tick over and another 25% just off tick over.
OK - so I didn't mind that much as I was running the engine in - but it made me think - and I switch her off if we are sat around doing nothing these days.
Just had my Opti fault code read, and engine use downloaded, figures were very similar, as I have just bought her, was quite happy to see the figures! only .4 hours over 5000 rpm, most of the 64 hours done at around the 1500 and 3000 rpm area,s, as was rear at my works,shame a printer was not available !!but as these numbers were not cleared out, will print off next time !!
