Good point. I figured since he had items up to 60k to life of the car, the principles carried upward. I edited my question accordingly.Justin - there is a key difference between this thread and Drivbiwire's thread. This thread is about maximum fuel efficiency and Drivbiwire's is about engine break-in without regard to fuel efficiency.
I still want to know if I am correct in the following concepts:
From what I have read so far I assumed it would be wise to keep the RPM between 1700-2400 when speeding up with a max of 75% on the pedal. This would not be considered harmful to the turbo as it hits the "sweet spot" with the boost (not babying it) and keeps mild RPMs for fuel economy. From my gasser experience I assumed that it would be wise to cruise in 4th when going 30mph vs 3rd (shifting down to 3rd when the time came to accelerate).
