    Re: Land Cruiser 300 - 3.3L V6 diesel

    You would need to do it under full load on an engine dyno for each RPM, to really get the graph you are after. If you are pottering along at 100km/hr you are not really demanding much of the engine....

    I bought mine because my Amarok gave up the ghost. Was not the fault of the car, but rather an idjuit mechanic that blocked the outlet of the thermostat.

    At this point Eskom should be begging any producers, of any amount, to feed into the grid. They talk a good game like they actually have a clue what is going on, but the reality is that they are...

    Will be interesting to see what resale is like in a couple of years. That is always the Achilles heel of the lesser known brands, but if the upfront price is low enough to offset this, then who cares?

    Hilux will also be able to tow heavier trailers than the LC to the farm if required so that is also a plus in my book.
