How many RPM's at 75mph?

My truck runs at 2300rpm at freeway speeds. Is this right?

Better than mine . Do you have 4.10 gear ratios? I think you might have 3.73 cause mine is over 2600 RPM at 75MPH 60MPH is around 2000 RPM

Ya i got 4.10 as well and i turn around 2500 at about 75 so you must be turning 3.73 gears.

2250 RPM @ 70MPH is about normal with 4:10's and OEM size tires.
The speed-o is programmable for different size tires.

'95 4x4 5-speeds (one ECLB one RCLB), stock 235/85R16s, 3.55s, both do exactly 2000 RPM at 70 MPH. Equates to aprx. 2140 RPM at 75 MPH.

Same tires, same tranny should do aprx. 2250 with 3.73, and 2475 with 4.10.

I have done some calculations on my mileage and the results are not so great! looks like I am getting just over 7mpg!!! What the heck. Dualls 4x4 make a huge differance or what? not sure on my rpms at 75mph cause we don't have a very straight rode around here. Lots of steep hills though.

I have a 97 crew 4x4 F250 and get 14 MPG in the city (35MPH) and 18 MPG on the HWY(70MPH) . That is at sea level with a pint of 2 cycle in the tank and a little DieselKleen.

Up in the mountains 3000-8000 feet on hilly roads going 40 MPH consumption goes to 10-12 MPG.
