I am not a very sporty driver because high speeds frighten me. My car is a 2013 BMW F30 with N13 engine. I always drive slowly whether i am in a city or on a highway. I never ever go past 90 kph (56 mph) speed. The car idles around 1000 rpm and generally shifts up the gear around 2000 RPM (its an automatic). When in a highway going at 90 kph, engine revs 1500 RPM.
So my engine never sees 2500 RPM or higher. Does this really hurt the engine? I heard from people that always driving in low RPMs makes carbon build up in engine and things like that. Is that real?
