I was rummaging the internet the other day and happen to come upon tested powertrain performance charts here: http://rototest-research.eu/index.php?DN=29 Assuming that you're accelerating onto a highway or something (don't have to worry about stopping after you start), you want to accelerate using the most efficient torque for your engine as well as being on the highest gear possible for the speed to maximize fuel efficiency during acceleration, is this correct? So for my car (http://rototest-research.eu/popup/performancegraphs.php?ChartsID=566), would it be accurate to say I want to be accelerating somewhere around 2500 rpm or so to capture the most efficient torque? It would seem that I definitely shouldn't be trying to accelerate any faster than that because there wouldn't be much more torque from between the 2500 and the 4500 rpm peak torque? For application, this would apply towards pulse and glides and accelerating from stop, right? I think the website could be a good resource to those wanting to know where the optimal rpm for their engine is for accelerating.
