What is the purpose for a tachometer with a CVT transmission? There are no gear changes. I have turned my tach off in settings. I didn't see a use for it unless someone can enlighten me. Thank you.
Thank you. Sounds reasonable; now I know...I'll turn it back on.So you don't blow your engine. During break-in, keep under 3500 RPM, and afterward under 6500.
Also for us hypermilers, we try to keep RPM's low to save gas. Just by lifting the gas pedal and restoring, you can get the RPM's to drop
I would have to agree. The CVT in my 2014 Accord was usually operating at 2000 rpm or less while driving. This engine speed is not in the powerband but was efficient. Powerband and efficient rarely exist together.Uh, no it doesn't. You decide with your right foot what RPM you want, and the car merely catches up, kinda like a slipping clutch.
