At the moment my car sits at 1900rpm at 100km, just wondering if you guys have the same reading, thought this would be a way of seeing if my car speedo is out. cheers.

gotta remember guys it depends on gearbox/gear/diff ratio.

Those numbers are right for a auto in D with a 3.08 diff.

What diff ratios does the AU fairlane Ghia have? I think its 3.23:1. My cab sits on 1900 at 100kmh but my lane sits on just over 2000rpm at 100kmh.

My XF sits on around 2300rpm at 100kmh. 3 speed auto and 2.77:1 diff gears.

Should be around 2000rpm dead even, depending on if your torque converter still locks up. Once they get worn they need a bit of right foot coaxing to lock up.
