  • Fuel Economy

    Hi All, Now I'm not in anyway linked to any fuel brand or have ever been one of these people who has said one brand of fuel is better than another, But I would like to see if anyone else has experienced the same as I have.

    My Pajero is a 1996 2.8l TD NJ Wagon. On a recent trip of 4800 klm whenever I used BP diesel, my fuel economy was in the 9 - 9.5lt/100klm and any other brand of fuel returned a 10.5 - 11lt/100klm

    hey there just on fuel economy.. i drive a 89 swb pajero 2.6l petrol and the fuel economy is shocking!! 240km / 60 litres of fuel now i have taking the car to my local mechanic and he says he couldn't find anything wrong and that is about normal for these models?? I have a sneaking suspicion my mechanic doesn't know shit and think it could need a carbi rebuild... As i have previously only driven deisel landcruisers any insight would be much appreciated!! cheers

      The old Astron engine didn't give great economy in a stigma, so I can imagine it in a Paj would be shocking. But you are talking 25L/100km and that is really bad. Reckon the carby is overfuelling you. Can your mech or local dyno shop check your AFRs?

        Used to drive an NC shorty with the 2.6 and it got pretty good consumption. Can't remember figures (was too many years ago) but would have been around 12/13 lt/100K. Take it to a Dyno place and get it tuned properly.

          Anybody got any fuel consumption figures for a new NS Exceed?

          I've got a MY05 NP Exceed and get around 10.5L/100k around town and 16~17L/100k towing a 2400kg caravan. My friend however has a new NS Exceed and he's only getting about 13.5L/100k around town.

          This doesn't sound right as I would have thought his economy would the same if not better than mine.

              At 10.5l/100 around town and 16-17 towing 2500kgs, it would HAVE to be a diesel.

              The petrol is used to have (3.5 Mitsu) got 13-14 around town and 22+ towing.

              My 05 Exceed 3.2DID gets the same as PBExceed. My van is around 2400 kgs - Jayco 23'.

                Yes, I've had a little bit of variation in different pumps. That is very good economy you quote. The lowest I had my 2.8TD down to was 10L/100, and that was when I first bought it (i think it was running lean too). I've had the timing advanced a little now and returns around 11-11.5L/100km.

                Does yours blow much smoke? If so what colour?

                  It blows a very very tiny amount of black smoke while it is under boost i.e. 1800rpm upwards, Other than that, no smoke at all. I change oil and oil filter every 5000 k and Fuel filter every 10 000 k

                        I have the NS Did exceed.

                        Best I have got for a tank is 10.7/100km when doing a trip up the highway.

                        Around town I still get around 13l/100km for every tank. I have really been dissapointed in this and thoughti it would be a lot better. Hopefully it is not just my vehicle as it sounds like others are getting about this as well.
                        thanks,

                          Hi all,
                          I have a NS VRX Petrol and i get about 12.7 -13.5 around town (usually less then 13.5)
                          gee 13 for a diesel doesnt sound very good!! I think id be a bit dissapointed.
                          I have noticed that peopple have widely varying fuel consumption.
                          I think it has to do with where you live too.
                          Im not sure you can class peak hour traffic as driving so I would disregard any figures obtained in peak hour traffic.
                          Last year when my Paj was 3000 km's old I went up north did 8000km's and averaged about 13l/100km but I was always going into the wind (not towing) I was a bit dissapointed because usually when i hit the highway i get about 11l/100km having a head wind makes a huge difference.

                          cheers
