This is incorrect, at least w.r.t my '90 100tq and the '85 200tq I
The transducer outputs pulses in either direction. This is easily
verified by taking the car on a spin backwards and noting that the
speedo shows the real speed also going backwards.
This is also how it naturally should be, as the car moves a certain
distance at a certain speed going either direction.
