Cool thanks, "ej22" helps! So 3500 is the sweet spot in the middle of the droopy line? This type is hard for me to understand.

That's kind of how I read it. I don't know if the 2.5 matches that curve but I would guess that it's pretty close.

that downward blob centered on 3500 is showing that you can lift off a little and keep it in that 190 zone. If the 2.5 caries that trend anyway. I figure it's likely accurate enough to call 2500-3500 best sfc for acceleration.

that 34mpg is pretty impressive I will be interested in seeing if it's a fluke or what. I'm guessing it's the difference 500lbs and much better CdA makes between an imprezza and a forester.


Learn from the mistakes of others, that way when you mess up you can do so in new and interesting ways.

One mile of road will take you one mile, one mile of runway can take you around the world.
