On lupo gear ratios ar something similar.

I know that best BFSC is at max torque for TDI, But I have seen that my MPG drops when I try to shift at higher RPM (2200-2500)

My car is far enough from stock. Stock lupo 1.4 TDI has wastgate turbo, 75HP and about 200 Nm torque.

MY car is chiptuned several times, has been upgraded to Hybrid VNT turbo from lupo 3L and now it develops 110 HP and 250 Nm, my peak torque is at 2300-3000 RPM
