The tachometer measures the number of revolutions the engine makes in a minute. This indirectly equates to the speed of the vehicle.

Depending on the gear that the vehicle is in, you could determine speed with a tachometer. To determine your speed, you would need to know the gearing of the rear end as well as the circumference of the wheels.
