I was thinking about the most fuel efficient approach to acceleration in our diesel, and I was guessing that staying at the engine's max torque RPM was probably ideal. Then I read about Brake Specific Fuel Consumption
, which is the Right Answer™ (peak efficiency is usually close to the max torque point).
I was hoping someone had a BSFC map for our engine that they could share/link.
Yes, I know we can empirically derive an approximation of this by using ScanGuage/Torque and running experiments by observing OBDII fuel consumption data during various acceleration profiles, but that's no fun compared to analyzing a BSFC map.
