When I had my 1985 non-turbo VW Golf diesel I usually was in top gear by 35mph. I'm not sure what the RPMS were, but I guess I could calculate it based on speed, gear ratios and tire diameter. But one thing for sure, that car had barely any acceleration even when revving it up high. I think the big commercial diesels I drove had better acceleration.
