    Default Fuel consumption for 3L D4D and 4L V6?

    Morning

    A friend of mine want to buy the Hilux 4x4. What is the fuel consumption on the 3L diesel and the 4L V6?

    Which one would you recommend?

    Another question, heard rumours about a face lift on the new Hilux, anybody knows something about this?

    Thx

    from the various customers i have for tyres etc, most get 9-10 km/l on the d4d and 6.5-7.5km/l on the v6.
    the hilux raider recieved a mils facelift in october 2007. the following was done.
    1. chrome inserts on grille.
    2. drivers side one touch automatic window switch.
    3. removal of toyota large sticker on tailgate.

    dont think another facelift will come anytime soon.

    In Namibie we had 4.0l Pado and 3.0D fortuner. In low range driving and playing in sand, the petrol went down to 4km/l and the diesel to 8km/l

    My understanding is that there will be a facelift during the third quarter of 2008, as well as a new model in terms of an automatic diesel.

    Hilux 3.0D4d you should get around 10-10.5km/l at no more than 130km/h on clock. Push her a little more it easily drops to 9.5km/l. I reckon after canopy, tyres etc etc you can look at 9-9.5km/l.

    Petrol, work on a average of about 6km/l.

    Default Consumption

    I agree with Brian Webber.

    My 3.0 D4D gets 10-10,5 L/100KM in the city and 11-11,5 L/100 km on the open road. There is not much difference in consumption between city and open road driving it seems. Claims of 9-10 L/100 was not yet obtained in my Fortuner till date.

    Friend of mine has the Hilux d4d 4x4. He likes to "put foot" and gets between 10 and 12 km/l. He claims he average over 11km/l over 40 000km. In the fortuner I've had 10.2km/l (putting foot on the open road) to 11.7 km/l.

    I would immagine the V6 gives around 6 to 7 km/l. I've heard claims of 9km/l but having owned the 2.7i previously and knowing how much the petrols can drink I find that hard to believe.
    Current: 2010 Discovery 4 V8 - amazing cruiser and the only vehicle I've had that actually inspires me to give it a nickname.

    I think anything over 11km/l on a double cab d4d 4x4 at the coast is slightly unrealistic. Try as I might my best ever is 10.8km/l. Canopy has dropped it down by about 0.5-0.9km/l. Getting around 9.6-10km/l now.

    Have both a 3.0L D4D Automatic Fortuner (wife's car) & a 3.0L D4D Manual Hilux Double Cab. according to the computer on the Fortuner, it is getting 8.3km/l (mainly short trips around camp, school, shops, etc.). I get around 9km/l (also driving short distances). On longer trips, consumption improves sitting at around 120 to 130 km/h (nearly forgot - I am sea level)

    I agree! Mine has given me 10/6 according to the computer over the past 5000 km

    Its quite interesting to note though. It seems hilux's from my expierence get far better consumptions at altitude than at sea level. Both my 2.7i's would jump from 6km/l to 7.5-8km/l at altitude. I have even noticed on the d4d she gets almost 1km/l better the higher the altitude....

    Any 4l V6 owners wan't to give me some more info on their fuel consumption. I am getting 5.5-6km/l on the Nissan so 7 to 8 will be a welcome improvement.

    I think its time for an upgrade when I get back to SA. If THIS one was white I would have had a winner.

    As ek iets tow sal dit 'n 6 voet venter wees, maar dit gaan nie baie gebeur nie.
    As ek weg is word my bakkie so paar keer 'n week gery deur my suster, maar as ek by die huis is, skuur ek net gat.

    Gaan baie kort entjies ry heeldag, en op die langpad as ek 'n ooppad sien wil ek 140 kan cruise om die pad 'n bietjie korter te maak. Is ek reg om te se die petrol pas my bestuur styl beter? Ek wil nie die diesel hoef te nurse nie.

    90% van die tyd gaan ek alleen/2 mense in die bakkie wees, en ek sal permanent die yskas agter in hou met 'n gewone canopy. Sal ek so 7km/l kan kry as ek nie te rof is met die regtervoet nie?
    Vir 'n naweek weg sal hy dan 4 mense + bagasie wees. Sal dit onder 6km/l val in daardie toestande?

    Wat sal die diesel se gemaklike cruise spoed wees met 4 mense, yskas en bagasie?

    As ek nou koop, gaan ek hom so 3 tot 5 jaar ry, en ek wil nie hoef te worry oor injectors en turbo wat kan skeefloop nie, wil net inklim en die pad vat.

    Enige raad en informasie sal waardeur word.

    Dankie
    Adri

    I have just parked my V6 coming from Namibia, so i can give you some figures fresh from the press or the exhaust if you like

    The mention of consumption at altitude is on my mind too, both with my supercharged merc and V6 fortuner.

    Driving in Nam at 140-150 i was getting 13.6l/100 or 7.35km/l
    Having come down to sea level with a hell of a head on wind, consumption at 130-140 went up to about 16-17l/100km.

    Over 2300km trip I averged 15.2l/km or 6.5km/l.

    It should be said that i did not bother with consumption, just drove it. If you keep the computer on it just disappoints with hectic figures for the fiscal year.

    I also saw a heavily loaded, fully kitted V6 fortuner (suspension, bf's, snorkel and the lot) filling up next to me. Over the same distance, me having done it ahead of them, he used 66odd litres versus my 46 litres. So load will play quite a role. BTW I was travelling with two bags of pampers and a laptop

    The biggest problem with that is that you are on holiday when that happens....you are supposed to not worry about anything but now you worry about the fuel...and at the back of your head is my car breaking down?
