Your speedometer reads faster than what you are moving.

The stock speedometer shows 7.7% faster than actual speed.

Dropping in front, and/or raising any in rear throws it off even farther.


That sounds about right. According to my Speedo I'm doing 60 but on my GPS I'm just doing 50.

So when you guys are cruising at 40-55mph you just stay in 5th instead of shifting one more time and letting the motor chill? I dunno, if I'm not about to turn, climb a hill, or need to pass someone, I shift in to the highest gear I can without lugging. EX: If the speed limit is 35, I am probably doing about 40mph and in 6th.

I try to keep my motor in or close to the power band for saftey sake on the Interstate. 40-55 would be 5th.
