Hi there Sarah, the rpm just increases as a consequence of your car's speed. Because the car is going faster at 70mph, it requires more fuel (due to friction) in any case. But because the engine is spinning faster, this also causes the car to use more fuel.

You won't cause any damage to the car, it has a top speed in excess of 100mph, the only point worth noting is that the faster you travel, the more fuel you will use in a particular gear.

Hope that helps to clarify.

Paul:)
