kangoo mph/1000rpm - crofty
Has anyone got any ideas about mph per 1000/rpm for a renault
kangoo.I have just bought the vehicle and I would like to run
it in as per honestjohns advice page.It is a 1.9 normally
aspirated diesel.I have tried contacting renault through websites
and their help line(hopeless call centre)i have put a technical
request in at the supplying dealer but I feel it will have
5000 miles on the clock by the time they get back to me.The
handbook says it does 90mph at 4500 rpm ie top speed,do you think
I could assume that it does 20mph/per 1000rpm in top.Any help
would be appreciated.

Sorry, should be 18.6. Too early for this sort of techy stuff!

Thanks for the info Andy,I assume we are talking about 5th gear
don,t suppose the article had 3rd and 4th gears by any chance

Yeah, the only figure was for top gear.

The test was actually a group of the Kangoo, Berlingo, and VW Combi. The Berlingo having a 22.2 figure, the VW not listed.

The mag obtained 38 mpg for the Kangoo, which adding on the usual 20% for normal? driving, means 45mpg should be reachable.
