Hi Evert,

Which Carb has he got fitted to the engine - the Chinese one or something else? The Chinese ones do tend to run rich and there always seems to be a smell of petrol with them.

Hi FD

He has the old standard toyota carb what he got with his origanal toyota 4y.
I also know that his consumption was more or less the same with his previous toyota 4y.
He had a little better consumption at one stage with a weber fitted but took it of becuese he blew the head gasket twice.
With the standard carb he never had that problem.

Ek ry vanaf Paarl tot in Parys Vrydag middag en aand. Die voertuig is volgelaai +/- 350kg agter in die kappie.

Die doel is om teen so 100-110 km/h te ry en te kyk of ek so 7.5 km/l kan kry. Ek wil probeer om net 2 keer vol te maak langs die pad, alhoewel dit dalk `n stretch kan wees met `n 65l tenk.

Ek sal julle laat weet sodra ek alles uitgewerk het en dit hierso post.
Ek is hier bo in Pretoria, en het nou nadat alles so te sê uitgesorteer is, die somme gemaak en hier is al die dinge soos wat ek uitgewerk het.

Ek het 15 ure totaal opgery, stoppe ingesluit, aircon was heeldag deur die Karoo aan. Was tussen 32 en 35 buite. Vrag het ek geweeg en dit was 448kg wat ek agter in gery het.

Die gemiddeld wat ek gekry het was 7.8km/l vir die volle rit tot in Parys. Neem in ag dat ek die laaste 88km van Kroonstad na Parys teen 140km/h gery het.

So nou sal ek graag julle kommentaar wil hoor op hierdie. Ek gaan vanmiddag my Carb stel, en die choke en float reg kry, want hy is bietjie misluk om te start en te ry as hy koud is. Ly bietjie aan erg vertraagde reaksies, aka flat spot onder 2000rpm. So dalk kry en nog so bietjie meer uit my lorrie wat die sak sal help om meer gereeld te gaan speel.

Hi Guys
Thought I give you some feedback on my petrol consumption.
1992 Hilux 4x4 4Y
231,000km
petrol consumption before fix 4.6Km/l

I had a carb guy re-build the carb and re-jetted from 175 to 165.
Still did nothing for the PC (petrol Consumption).
Took the vehicle to SAC (Steve's auto Centre) in PE for a dyno test.
Found that the exhaust system was no good and that the exhaust manifold was cracked.
They Fitted wildcat branch and exhaust system and dyno'ed the vehicle increase in Kw from 36 to 42 Kw PC from 4.6 to 6.8 a 46% in-provement.
Interesting fact is that the transmission losses = 32Kw. No wonder the vehicle battles on up-hills.
Spoke to a previous owner who fiited a turbo and he told me that his PC increased to 10km/l

What do you guys think?

Greetings

Willie

Hi there,

Word on the fuel consumption on the open road. Today we drove to Eric in Klerksdorp to do the final Diff installation from Pretoria. To get out of Pretoria I pushed my Red Hilux between 110 to 130km/h for the 1st 150km. We decided to drive far over Ventersdorp to get kms on the clock. At one stage on the GPS my top speed was 156km/h and the average speed was 92km/h.
We also had a wind from the front.

The overall comsumption from Pta to Klerksdorp and back was 7.74lt/km. This is without the ECU being programmed and the distributer being set properly. I hoped it to be more but we drove fast.

Eric, I think it is time to come fetch Bulldog again. How else must I test my fuel consumption?

I hope you enjoy Bulldog with the new Diff!!

Regards,
Louis

Louis, many thanks once again for all the hard work and dedication put in by you and Abri. I have updated the thread concerning this, perhaps you might have more input to offer as well. I have not yet downloaded the video clip, will post it when I do.

Bulldog's average open road consumption is estimated to be about 8.5km/l minimum. We got 7.7km/l tested over 396Kms, 50% of it city driving and the rest open road driving, at around 120Km/Hr true GPS speed.

I'll report back when Bulldog stretches his legs again.

Hi guys

It's great to have all the posting about diffrernt models and modifications and the fuel cosumption you get. If you get an combined cycle, urban and open road it would be interesting as well.
I don't see many diesels though or are to light on fuel to mention. I get about 7.5 on a combined cycle as a average, on my 2.7 current model. But it all depends alot on driving style too, if you drive old
man fashion compared to burning through those reves it really makes a huge difference, my worst is 5.7 in traffic driving like a taxi, only thing is I can't claim the subsidy from goverment so I force myself to drive civilized.
Another thing I would like to know is if you can really se a real differenc between driving with an open bak or covered one or without a tailgate. And what does the drag from a canopy or rooftop tent
add to your consumption, if you drive the tyres soft or hard did you get a uge difference in consumption?

Arno,

Jy gaan nie 'n verskil sien as jy 'n cover oor die bak sit nie. Met of sonder kry jy dieselfde gebruik. Wat wel 'n verskil maak is natuurlik gewig en aërodinamika. As jou canopy dieselfde hoogte as jou roofline is, behoort jy nie weel van 'n verskil te sien nie. AS jy die rooftoptent opsit gaan jy 'n groot :shock: verskil sien. Net om jou 'n idee te gee. As my bakkie sy RTT op het, dan haal ek miskien 110km/h op gelyk pad met geen wind van voor nie. As ek nog wind van voor kry dan is dit erger (my bakkie het 'n 50mm suspension lift in).

Sagte bande gaan vir jou 'n klein bietjie gemakliker rit gee maar dit gaan verseker ook vir jou 'n groter petrol bill gee. Dit gaan hier weer oor rol weerstand. So all in all gaan dit oor die weerstand wat die voertuig bied. Enige iets wat verby die normale buitelyne van die bakkie steek gaan vir jou meer petrol kostes gee.

Cassie, ek wil met jou verskil. Toe ek my ex Nissan 1400 en my ex 2.7 VVTi gery het, het ek op altwee n beter petrol verbruik gekry met die seiltjie as sonder. Dit was nie baie nie(kan nie presies onthou hoeveel nie), maar dit was daar. Die wind druk teen jou bakklap vas, wat nie gebeur met n seiltjie nie. Met die Nissantjie het ek as die seiltjie nie op was nie, die bakklap los gemaak en laat sak as ek die dag haastig was, en dit het my topspoed so bietjie gehelp.

Die outjies op Mythbusters het juis hierdie ding gaan toets. Hulle het met hulle scientific intrumente ens. op die highway gaan ry (nogal met 'n Toyota bakkie wat baie soos die Hilux lyk). Hulle het die petrol verbruik getoets met die volgende setups: Bakkie met tarpolin cover oor die bak, bakkie met geen cover oor bak, bakkie met geen cover en klap, bakkie met geen cover en net in die plek van klap. (ek kan ou nie onthou of hulle 'n canopy ook getoets het nie)

In al die gevalle het die petrol verbruik basies identies gebly. Ek kan nou nie onthou wat was die verduidelikking hoekom nie maar ek dink dit gaan maar oor die vortex wat form net agter die kajuit wat veroorsaak dat nie een van daai setups 'n voordeel bo oor die ander een kry nie.

Ek het ook daai program gesien Cassie... Daar was ook ene waar hulle getoets het watter is die meer ekonomiese, oop vensters sonder aircon of toe vensters met aircon ... Geen wesenlike verskille kon gevind word nie... :shock: :? 8)

Ek het so lanklaas vir Jamie en Adam gekyk.....
Cassie, sponsor my n seiltjie, dan bust ek Mythbusters se bevinding. Hoe vinnig het hulle gery?
Maar soos ek se, dit was nie kilometers per liter wat dit verbeter het nie, maar daar was wel n verskil.

Elke gram help ja.... so as mens nou so erg wil gaan op besparing, sit daai seiltjie op, maak die bakkie nooit voller as half nie (meer petrol verbruik, swaarder met vol tank), Moet nie net jou blaas leeg maak nie, no 2 ook, drain jou windscreen washer se water (nog gewig wat gespaar kan word), pomp die bande stywer as wat hulle moet wees, was jou bakkie elke keer voor jy ry anders bied die veilgoed meer weerstand, as jy erg wil bespaar, ry net op dae wat dit bewolk is (druk is hoër so voertuig het meer krag en hoef nie so hard te werk om op te spoed te kom)..... en en en..... So as mens nou so erg wil raak is daar baie maniere om petrol verbruik beter te kry :twisted: :twisted:

Thnaks vir die info
Julle klink nou soos die outjies by formule een waat elke gram petrol 'n verskil maak aan die performance, of soos vliegtuie hoe gladder die pollish of glazing is hoe verder kom jy op tenk agv die minder windweerstand, Maar ja ons bakkies is nie die mees aerodynamic voertuie in die wereld nie, Ek sal daarvan hou om bietjie 'n windtonnel toests te sien met 'n high profile canopy en low ene en met of sonder 'n oop bak, Ek het nog al die jare gehoor daar is baie drag op die bak agv die tailgate, maar as jy dit afhaal dan is dit beter of as jy 'n cover opsit is dit beter. Maar ek het nog nie bewyse gesien dat die verskil noemenswaardig is nie, Ek het wel al op Landy gevoel as die rooftop op die dak is op 'n series 110 dan voel dit of jy met die handbriek aan ry, die drag is baie groot agv. daarvan, Ek wonder of die nuwe nuwe nissans wat uitkom met daai fancy roofcarriers en so seiltjie cover effek op die dak 'n verskil maak aan hulle aerodinmika, maar ja 'n rooftop maak 'n helse verskil aan brandstof, en 'n noemenswaardig load en long range fueltanks wat vol is. Maar ek wag nog om te sien van die bakkie cover en cannopies, ek dink 'n canopy se gewig maak ook 'n verskil.
Ek het nie die begroting om 'n wetenskaplik toets met kontroles te gaan doen op al die nie
petrol is duur en ry dit eerder uit op plesier uitstappies as om aerodinmika te toets, maar dit sal noggal interressant wees. Ek glo 'n bak bedekking maak 'n verskil, maar nie so groot dat 'n ou dit regtig sal agtekom nie, Ek reken die grootste faktor is 'n swaar voet.

Hi guys my current Hilux 2.7VVT-i Raider is not properly rub-in yet, although the manual states run in period is 1000km.
I currently get 14l/100k on an average urban peak hour bumper to bumper cycle and I tend to use the the revs now and then ,(now and than often) On the open road I get about 8L/100km (also depending on average speed)

I hear the the new the TRD V6 launched in OZ is even lighter. I wanted go for the D4D but all our engineering articles about dirty diesel am modern common rails scared me......

Dis reeds hoekom ek 'n Toyota Tundra V8 TRD supercharged weergawe soek, maar jy sien hulle nie hier nie, Jy kry 'n Hilux V6 TRD superchardged weergawe in Australia en is glo die lekkerste speelding met sy auto 4x4 box. Maar soos dinge nou gaan; gaan hulle jou "hijack" en se hou maar die kar en jou cellfoon ons drein net die petrol tenk want dis meer werd......................................

Daar is 'n rede daarvoor, dit is die verkopende 1 ton bakkie in SA en internasionaal het die Toyota Hilux/Vigo uitstekend gevaar.... behalwe Amerika daar kry jy die Tacoma kleinste en goedkoper pick-up truck hulle weermag gebruik hulle in Afghanistan en Irak; seker om humv' wat breek by te staan , hulle kleinste petrol is 'n V6 en hulle weet nie wat is 'n 4y enjin en dan die die Tundra wat so groot soos die Ford F250 is.Maar hulle specs is baie hoer met meeste autoboxes en luukser interiors. Toyota racing development maak 'n blits vinnige supercharged weergawe. In brittanje is die Hilux Vigo net so populer en identies aan ons hilux. Nou vra weer(sonder om Ford/Chev tipe argumet te begin) hoekom verkoop Hilux en ander Toyota produkte die beste in SA en wereldwyd en dis sefnities nie die prys nie???

These consumption figures are from a mix of town and gravel driving, not that much open road.

Correction regarding 4xTech and AEW Auto

i was mislead reagrding these two companies and want to state that they are or have been in no way connected to each other.

Allan used to work at 4xTech but left and opened up AEW Auto. You'll still get excellent service from him.

Apologies if i may have offended anyone.

Oooo you must refer to "supercharged" ... :roll: maybe it's wrong, I'm not sure and shame on me for that.
I'll check the book.

OK, must be normal 'turbo charged'. I'm not being nit-picking, I really thought it sounded very interesting. :) Especially since you have recorded some of the lowest consumption figures to date on the forum. :o I thought maybe we are in for a nice new version of the diesel engine with lots of low down grunt and (from your experience) low fuel consumption to boot! It would have been a killer for other brands! It’s not like the Hilux is not already putting the screws on other brands though… :) :) :twisted: :twisted:

This is the European Spec mate. :wink:

It has up to 40% better fuel efficiency than the South African Market Spec :o:

The "SuperCharged" label refers to the main addition a "negative air space regulating Monitor".

Cornelius, shame swaer, I just happened to see that no-one replied to your question. Of course by now you've probably already bought a diesel, and you would have learned that diesel's are indeed generally more economical to run, not only on fuel economy but the motors last a lot longer as well. Petrol units have always had more grunt for equivalent engine capacity, but diesel technology is quickly closing that gap.

Sorry for the late response, most of the guys on this forum are pretty knowledgeable and quick to respond. Your query must have slipped through under the radar. Hope to hear from you some more. :thumbup:

Ek besit n 1988 Hilux,met n japan import enjin in(4Y).Die Enjin het ongeveer 10 000 km op en die gee my teen 110 km/h 10,5 km/l.
My vorige hilux was n 1995 hilux dit het dieselfde gegee.
Het hom al n paar keer vir n diens gevat by bekende werkswinkels,maar keer maar elke keer terug na my oorspronklike "mechanic" omdat diepetrol verbruik verswak as ek hom op ander plek laat diens.
