    Re: Prado 150: 4.0 Petrol vs 2.8 Diesel

    Not enough difference to allow the TD to stay in it's optimum torque band. You would need A LOT more gears than the petrol V6 in order to allow this to happen, maybe 8 or better 10 and a very fast...

    Re: Prado 150: 4.0 Petrol vs 2.8 Diesel

    And what makes you think that torque isn't a factor in the 0-100 km/h acceleration (yes, that's acceleration, too)?

    Re: Offroad Trailer - QA

    Do you want a caravan or a camping trailer? That entirely depends on your way of camping.

    Rent a couple of different trailers and caravans and see what features you like and what layout you prefer.

    Could it be the VNT mechanism or motor on the turbo?
    Those things might get sticky and the VNT system won't work as intended anymore. A good clean might improve it.
