Hello all,

Hope you're all enjoying your vans out and about.

My query to anyone that reads this and can answer it is...The speedo is in mph, but the odometer is in Km. Is this correct please?
I have a 2006 aircooled. TIA.

Yes that is correct, Danbury stuck a mph sticker over the speedo to comply with regs. I found it more accurate to read speed on satnav though.

Thanks Dizzy. My speedo shows approx 5mph more than actual speed when checked against the satnav.

This is normal if you got alloys and low profile tyres. Tim

I haven't though Tim. Normal wheels and tyres. I don't mind; it's better the speed being shown as faster than you're going than the other way!

Certainly on Aircooled the speedo reads higher than actual. Irrespective of standard wheels or alloys.

I didn’t know this. Will check Lily’s speed against satnav.

Thanks for raising this topic.

I did a test drive in Lily and the speedo is registering 5mph faster than actual speed shown on satnav. Which as Davyboy57 said is better than the other way around.

Good to know.

Ours is about 5mph out although seems to drop to about 3mph out at speed.

Speed of course, being a relative term when it comes to kombi`s
