RPM on the 4,8 GRX Auto at 120 km/h???

Postby petri oosthuizen » 18 Nov 2015 17:18

Can anyone please assist me with 1st hand info here, apologies if this has been discussed before - if so, please give me the link.

What is the RPM on the 4,8 GRX Auto, at 120 km/h?? I'm very interested in buying one, and I just need to know what RPM's it cruises at.

Thanks, appreciated!! :blonde:

At 110 km the RPM on mine showed 2000 today so at 120km/h it should sit around 2250

Re: RPM/Consumption on the 4,8 GRX Auto at 120 km/h???

Thanks guys. That's quite low and nice.
I am used to the lower gearing of the V6 Cruiser and the EFI 100, which sits at around 3000 RPM at about 120/125........and I love low RPM's at highway speeds.
I've edited the Thread Header too, to include consumption. How much can I expect, around 5-6 km/litre at 120??

Big difference between the auto and manual then, manual runs at almost 3k at 120. so in theory the GRX should have better consumption..

Hi Tinus,


This is for the petrol guys who worry about fuel consumption and have to drive normally, sad day :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: :rolling:

Some other words that explain normal

natural ,orderly, ordinary, regular, routine, traditional, typical, average, commonplace, general , mean , median , standard , accustomed,
acknowledged , conventional , customary , habitual , prevalent , run-of-the-mill , typical, unexceptional


Now for how we should be driving and behaving, ( this is what diesel smoke does to you)


abnormal , different , disorderly , extraordinary, irregular, rare , uncommon , untraditional , unusual , exceptional , extreme
eccentric , insane , irrational , odd , strange , unbalanced , unconventional
Specialized Epic

You can't expect to be old and wise
if you were never young and crazy
