    When driving abroad in my motorhome I have trouble seeing the tiny red kph on my speedo fiat based cab do other funsters have the same problem or is there some sort of sticker you can buy to put over the top of the mph? Or maybe I should buy some 2 inch thick glasses

    I just set my GPS to show the speed in Kph, much more accurate than the actual speedo. It also shows the max speed for most roads but that is not always correct.

    We have MPH overlay on the KPH speedo but I just look at the say nav and that gives me the speed limit as well.

    Why not use your sat nav.

    Tom Tom, if you set units to km it will display your speed in km/h

    You can always fit a KPH dial before going abroad

    OK just realised the OP wants to read the speedo in KPH, buy a LHD would be one suggestion or as suggested above set your sat nav to KPH.

    Sounds like fitting a dial would be a large job just thought it might be possible to stick one over the glass and remove on return

    5 to 10 minutes to swap once you've done it for the first time.

    1kph = 5/8ths of a mile

    so!

    30 mph=50kph

    50mph= 80kph

    4.55 litres = 1 gallon

    Ergo 22litres = 5gallons

    Seemples innet?

    Mine is for sale. It is from a 2008 3 litre Ducato. I changed mine to the dual dial as I posted.

    I am sorry I was speeding for the last ten minutes it's taken me that long to divide by 6 and add 10
