Re: High-RPM cruising with a 147 2.0 Selespeed?
150-160 cruising speed for 2.0 147 is not a problem at all. This is my usual cruising speed at highways. Just do not forget to check oil before going to a trip, and fill it just under max mark.
147 2.0 gets hot only after 185-190 km/h, but if Selenia Racing 10W-60 is inside, you can drive it under 190 km/h several hours with no problems at all.
160 is around 4500 rpm... not much.
If you keep it under 140 km/h even fuel consumption is OK, around 8-8,5l/100 km, if you keep the pace and do not accelerate and brake much :-)
