  • Economy: Diesel vs Petrol

    What economy per 100 km's should I expect from 2000-2002 Pajero before I buy one?

    Please refer to the FAQ section there is a great table on fuel consumption of all engines

        Just traded my 2000 V6 Pajero on a 2006 DID.

        Went from 17L / 100km to 9L / 100km.

        We'll save $10,000 in fuel over 4 years and the DID has as much if not more poke than the 3.5V6. I can drive it on cruise all the way up the Hume to Sydney without shifting out of 5th gear, where the old one wanted 4th on many of the hills.

          Hi Don,
          Our 2002 NM DiD manual averages 9 litres/100km, we usually get about 1000kms from our 90 litre tank
          Towing our 2.5T boat it averages 16 litres/100km.

            our 3.5l does alright. average 13-14 around town and as low as 11 on the highway. I am not a lead foot, but then again I don't pussy foot around either. What I do do is keep the oil changed regularily with mobil one as well as all the other oils, run a K&N and have high tyre pressure.

            Hope this helps.

            The only reason we didn't go for a oil burner is the wife hates the sound, makes it sound like a tractor she says. You can't argue with logic like that.
