    Ek gebruik 'n app aCar om my verbruik te monitor wat 'n persentasie indikasie van city/highway driving het en wat ek altyd probeer stel so na aan korrek (duim suig). Sal sien wat dit vir die volgende paar kilos gee.
    Einde van die maand sleep ek die boswa na Manyane toe. dit gaan ook 'n interessante syfer wees!

    Can anyone comment on realistic consumption I should expect and if this is too low, what can be done to better it?
    Injectors were checked before I bought it to be 100%.
    Thanks for your input!

    Most of the fortuner owners I have spoken to agree on this:
    Urban: +9km/l
    Highway: 10-11km/l

    Well that is quite good then... I must be driving like a madman then.


    I have met a few Fortuner drivers as well, and they too have these claims...

    yet find it hard to validate it. The extra urban cycle of 9.0 is achievable, but urban? above 9 No...

    But then again... The guys on this forum can achieve miracles.

    Thumbs up

    Actually thought my old Fuelly would have been deleted


    This is about 90%-95% urban - same usage for my FJ is 14.5 or so(not accurately calculated yet but I do have all the figures)

    True, I also get that on our 2006 Isuzu KB300 DC, never below 10km/l and there are definitely other more economic vehicles on the market. I'm just trying to at least get my Fortuner on par with others

    Quickly took the car to my mechanic and put it on the computer again. Injector no 2 is not performing well. I added an injector cleaner additive to the fuel now, will see if it helps.
    3 weeks ago all 4 injectors were 100%

    9.5 over the 110,000km. Mixed driving, many tanks involve a daily drive of 40km through town and about 10km highway each way. Haven't analysed the long trips but they're not substantially different. D4D Tuna 4x4, manual, at sea level ��

    It's the same as mine over 70,000km. Also the same as mine, not at sea level ??

    Interesting points about fuel consumption and altitude .... my turbo petrol is def heavier on fuel at the coast than at high altitude ...... and my logic told me it should be the other way around

    More power (at sea level) = higher consumption?

    Mine is 2006 3.0 D4D 4x4 Manual. Mileage is 144 000kms. I'm in Joburg

    I travel about 20km round trip per day. I dont get on the highway all week until Fridays.

    Friday and Saturday I get on the highway for about 30km round trip.

    I was getting 9.6km/L on Engen 50ppm

    Changed to BP 50ppm and got around 10.8km/L

    Had the injectors and fuel line cleaned (the company said they were actually not really dirty). Now I'm getting 11.4km/L

    This is with mostly urban driving.

    When I go to the coast I feel a definite difference in power out of turbo boost range. So basically more power from idle than at the reef. However, I did not notice a change in consumption. This does not mean there was not one, its just I didnt take note.

    Also, for the OP who recently got the Tuna. Without you noticing it your driving style will change over time to suit the vehicle and you will notice a change in the consumption.

    Driving style plays a huge roll in consumption. I dont mean considering whether you exceed the speed limits or not, but rather, how and when you come on power etc.

    Its not about how fast you are but about how quick you get there...

    Thanks Die$el. Question, how did you have the injectors cleaned? Can this be done successfully?

    I've been focusing on driving style now since the last fill-up, trying to 'learn' the car. the on-board computer still stays at around 7km/l, all in town driving. getting a bit worried...
    I'm gonna take it on the open road over the weekend a bit to see what I can get.

    You will, as the 'air pump' (engine) is getting more air due to higher air pressure / density.

    Agree with Jaco - my 2006 Fortuner got at least 1.5km/l more than my 2011 mode.

    Forget about the on-board indication. It is out sometimes (more often than not!) with even 1.5 km/l either way. (So it may be accurate at times if the fluctuation coincide with the real world value.

    And now I am convinced the FJ (4.0l V6) was a great buy.. Town sees me do about 6.5-7.5km/l and open road goes from 7-8.5km/l.. And it does not stink or rattle like a trekker..
