Hmmm, what RPM would 65mph in a TD correspond to? Probably higher than your
normal around town cruise -- hence the higher oil pressure reading. At least
in my B, the highest oil reading is always at freeway cruise (65-70mph), and
it is also around 70lbs. So I don't think it's anything to worry about.
