  • Impressive economy!

    I just filled up the DiD pajero for the wife (who refuses to do it herself because of diesel soaked nozzles), and just squeezed in 84 litres for 961km, thats 8.74 litres/100km. Gotta be happy with that out of a 2 ton 4wd.

    Hi Sandgroper

    I don't blame her the pumps are always filthy, what ever happened to the disposable gloves the servo,s used to supply?...Is that economy around town or H'way? Its pretty sensational either way

      I've never seen the disposable gloves at a servo in Perth, but I have heard people mention it before, maybe its an eastern states thing? I usually take down some paper towels to wrap the nozzle in. With more diesel cars being sold I thought the servos would have lifted their game by now.
      We usually average 9l/100km around town, not stop-start grid lock like Sydney. This last tank included a 200km country trip, thats probably why it was a bit better.

        I carry a pair of rubber gardening gloves in a toolbox in the back and use them when I can be bothered...

            With my Did the normal average it's 11L/100km but sometimes I had obtained 8L/100km dirving very softly in a long trip in road. BUT IT'S A TORTURE :-)

              We're getting 9.0L/100km on a freeway run cruising at 120kph on cruise control. Could probably be a bit better if I could be bothered downshifting from 5th up some of the bigger hills but the torque from the DID is amazing. Around town it's about 12L/100km.

              After owning a 3.5 petrol we are more than happy with the economy, especially as you say considering that it is a 2 tonne 4WD.

                    I keep a set of Nitrile Medical Examination Gloves in the car and use that. It is a pain to get diesel stink out of your skin and clothes.

                    I did a run to Bunya Mtns last weekend and got 10.6 l/100km in my NP DiD.
                    We had got 12-14 around town up until then.

                    I think doing 120km/h with a 450 litre pod on the roof detracted from the economy a bit.
