Ek glo nie daar is 'n merkbare verskil nie, ek het dadelik daarna die canopy opgesit so dis bietjie moeilik om te se. Teoreties behoort daar 'n verskil te wees.
Jy sal nie 'n fout maak nie, die voorkant was vir my bietjie sag ook van die pad af en nou is die bakkie duidelik in 'n ander klas ! Ek dink die Fortuners het 'n soortgelyke pyn. Die bakkie se agterkant het ook maklik "gehop" in 2 wiel op die sinkplaat paaie. Nou hoef jy nie eers 4 wiel toe te gaan nie, hy hardloop lekker.

Ek raak skoon depro as ek die ander KZ-TE manne se verbuik sien :evil: , almal lyk my kry gemiddeld indie orde van 9.5km/l. Ek sukkel deesdae om 8.5km/l te kry soos voorheen. Kan my Frontrunner roofrack op die cab en die canopy so groot verskil maak? :?:

I can understand that the guys with the chips / intercoolers may get a better consumption, is there somebody that can cast some light on the consumption for a std KZ?

Ek het oorspronklik gemiddeld maklik +/- 8.8km/l gekry, bygese voor BFG en die roof racks toe ek in 2007 die bakkie gekoop het op 145 000km. Kan dit so groot verskil maak!

Yes, that together with the tyre size / pressure could be responsible (wind resistance and rolling resistance).
CONSUMPTION: Around Town - 8km/l
Open Road (100km/h) - 8.2km/l
Off road & Overlanding - 7.3 km/l
These figures given tend to indicate just that ..... the open road figures are not much better than town or off-road. To me that very possibly indicates wind resistance at speeds, which are not so much a factor around town. On the open road there is no stop-start, working your way up and down through the gears, but mostly steady revs in high gear. This should give a 20 to 30% improvement over town driving, and you're not getting it. :scratch: :think:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Thanks Andy,

Looking forward to the "new" canopy that I am purchasing from Mark to see if it does make a difference, as I understand no RR on that and then take it from there.

Are there any mechanical aspects that I could monitor or get checked to maybe decrease my consumption to at least get a 9km/l - 9.5km/l like the rest of the KZ-clan? The BosMerc has a FSH with Toyota.

I'm totally dof when it comes to diesel motors :D: , but other than to make sure that the air filter is clean and that there are no obstructions to airflow, I'm afraid that one of the oil burners will have to give you a few tips / pointers. Maybe the injectors need to be serviced / re-calibrated? :think: Johann ("Toro Adventures") seems to be pretty clued up. ;-)

Thanks Andy,

I did replace the injectors (just the jets) a couple of months ago, did not really make a difference.

Lets see if we can get some info from the boffins.

I'm averaging 7.5 - 8 kms/l I do get slightly better averages on the highway. It seems to do better at speeds around 100 km/hr. 120km/hr runs the RPM's up close to 3000 and I think it starts using more fuel.

Ek is baie beindruk met my 2.7i S/C wat ek twee weke terug gekoop het, ek het gedink hy gaan baie swaar wees op brandstof! Dit lyk of ek so +- 9km/L kry in die dorp, maar ek probeer baie mooi ry, change ratte op +-2500rpm elke keer, en probeer ''free'' waar ek kan. Ek is seker ek kan dalk 10km/L kry as ek harder probeer. Ek het nou nog nie lang pad gevat met hom nie maar tot dus ver kan ek regtig nie kla nie! :thumbup:

I would like to get a new d4d but I will never be able to swop my 2.7i its a great 4x4. I am also still getting people to open their eyes when I am driving where it looked impossible. I love it!!

Good thread!! I have been fortunate with my Lux's consumption, though I have heard that the Pre-lift engine was more economical:

Vehicle: 1999 IFS 2.7 SRX 4x4 Hilux Double Cab
Km's on the clock: 457 576
Motor: 2.7L 3RZ Petrol still standard
Vehicle lift/ suspension: Monroe shocks,
Tyres: 31" BF Goodrich All Terrain
Carb mod/ spacers?:No, Standard
Air filter: Standard
Snorkel?: No
Cam cut?:No
Exhaust mod?: Standard, branch fitted
Tyre pressure Around town with lighter loads, 1.9psi in the rear and 2psi in the front.
Permanent roofrack/ tent etc?:No
Aircon?: Yes
Canopy?: No
Bullbar: ARB recently fitted, waiting too see if it will effect consumption

Average consumption overall for the past 5 years 12.64 l/100 and 7.91 km/l

Mostly daily commuting, on the open road, I have managed 8+

Chhers all!!

Do you have pics of your bakkie?
You have almost half `n mil km`s on your bakkie.
Do you still have the original engine in and did you have to replace anything up until now?
Well done!!

Hi Werner,

Thanks Buddy, jip still the original motor, had a "disagreement" with a BMW X3 ly December, and so I replaced the bonnet, and front fenders with the facelift panels and a ARB bumper...

Apart from that it's been basically replacing tie rod ends, and ball joints, nothing on the engine.

Send me your e-mail addie, and I will mail you pics, for some reason, I struggle with the uploas on the forum!!

Cheers

Hilux 2.2 4Y, 219000km, Brospeed Carb and manifold
Aluminium canopy, permanent roof racks, raised suspension, BFG A/T

Fuel consumption seems to stay around 6.6 km/l for urban and motorway (110km/h). I did manage 7.2 km/l once on dirt roads (90km/h). Does anyone know what to expect on overland trips (i.e. fully loaded, but travelling slower)? Also, the mixture "smells" rich - is self tuning a brospeed carb recommended/easy for improved fuel consumption?

Just did a quick trip to the KNP, I tried to average between 100-110Km/hr, this had a massive effect on my fuel consumption. Normally I get about 7.1Km/L but travelling at that slightly slower speed the Hilux got 8.2Km/L. Thats about 15% better consumption. I may have to change my driving style.

Craig, the 4Y is "happiest" at that speed. Bulldog has 31" Cooper STT, raised suspension and EFI and that is the speed the vehicle seems to find itself in mostly. With 31" tyres on it is pretty much true GPS speed as well.

Best I go was around 7.8km/l as far as I can remember.

Eric, the problem isn't the long distance driving, I can handle doing 110Km/hr. It's the Joburg traffic, well not when you are jammed up in it, but when you are gunning it to get to the correct lane, pass that truck, beat that robot, colse that gap sort of driving. That kills consumption. I find when I go on hoilday my driving is more chilled out. It shows by the consumption.

I empathise with what you say about the traffic. This morning, here in Klerksdorp, I had to wait a full 20 seconds as the third car at the Stop street trying to cross a busy road, there must have been at least seven cars causing me to sweat it out. This was during peak traffic at 7:30AM this morning.

I am thinking of relocating to a smaller town. :mrgreen:


Seriously, I was Joh'burg born & bred, but can never see myself ever getting used to that kind of traffic again. You have my utmost sympathies with that.

Just back from a long weekend in Tanzania's Mikumi Nat'l Park. Averaged 8.7km/l consumption over the 400km trip. About 90km was on packed dirt road within the park at 20-40km/hr. Thanks to local police I rarely went over 110km/hr on the tar road.

Glad nie, ons het ook net 100km per/h gery. So 80km was grondpad. Ek kla nie is net ek dink dit is te swaar. Die bakkie het twee tanks, al wat ek kan dink is of cab moet gestel word. of daar is foud by die tanks. Ek weet nie.En ek het al die c.o laat nagaan

352 GPS km's of Speedo km's.?? As dit Speedo km's is kan jy met gemak nog 50km bytel om dit 400kms te maak.. dit verander die prentjie al klaar..
