If its a diesel, itl have a governor - probably around 5500rpm? i dont know with modern diesels, but with my bros old 405 diesel it used to rev to 5500 and stop there. Also when they MOT test diesels, they floor the accelerator to test the governor, so it cant hurt it. I used to drive around at work in a 205 diesel on the governor for ages, it was its cruise control, but pedestrians didnt like it! that 205 has done over 160,000 miles and its still going! despite my best efforts to destroy it...
at my old work place we had a couple of mondeo tds always floored them up to 5500 and never took my foot off the accellerator intill i had to stop! never seemed to do them any harm even with 175,000 miles on the clock.
hiya matey, u wanna drive it as the same as ud drive any other car and when u feel it lacking the pulling power go 4 another gear mate, ive driven a 80 dci and it was wicked its the only thing u can do mate, just guess and change, think it was about 4.500 rpm ??
