This chart only shows BSFC at full load at the given RPMs. However, nobody drives at full load under normal circumstances.

A more useful map of BSFC over the entire range of operating speeds and loads (BMEP) is below, for an ALH TDI:


It can be seen that the minimum BSFC of 197 g/kWh occurs at around 1750 RPM and just shy of the full-load curve. However, a steady cruise, say in 5th gear at that RPM, would be far, far less for a correspondingly higher (worse) BSFC.
