I do a good bit of driving on rural roads where the speed limit is 45 mph. Would this be an application for O/D off? Ocassionally, the limit will drop to 35 and sometimes go up to 55. I don't do any stop and go city driving.
At what point is it better to run with O/D on? 55 mph, 60, 65????
Also, should you be at a complete stop to switch from O/D on to O/D off? I know it can be done on the fly, but is it harmful for the tranny to be driving with O/D off at 55 mph and switch to O/D as I approach highway cruising speeds. Or vice versa... I go from 65 mph down to a 45 mph zone and switch to O/D off.
dude all you have to do is look at your tach to answer your question. drive for a bit with od off and a bit with od on. the lower your rpms stay, the better mileage youre getting if your going the same speed. its pretty simple math bro, dont make it rocket science.
