Ford Econovan Top Speed? PLEASE HELP!

Ok so i posted here the other day and you guys gave me some good advice, i ended up getting the van i posted, which i have linked below..... all is fine and i drove it for 4 hours home today!!!

however.... i was cruising along and my average speed was probs 100 kmh occasionally i would hit 110 or just over if it was down hill, but uphill it struggled at around the 80-90 mark.

i have not drove in 3 years since i passed my test so maybe i was not driving in the right gear (was in 5th most the time at the above speeds)

my foot was close to the floor but yeh im just wondering if around 100 is all i should expect??? the guy did say it was ok at 100 but wasnt made to go over 110, so yeh can you guys just reassure me? i was using gas all the way!

thanks in advance!!! gaz

Re: Ford Econovan Top Speed? PLEASE HELP!

It looks like quite a tidy vehicle. I'm assuming you are meaning kph with speed.

I would have thought it would go a little faster than 110 at full speed. On hills ,depending on the grade, you will certainly need to use your gears.

My guess is that it should be able to do 130 kph at full speed.

Was the Van empty or did you have it loaded.

When you said you were using gas all the way..is this fitted with LPG?. If so then that can make a difference to performance.
