    A budddy of mine owns a workshop in Midrand. He got some guys out with their contraptions to do it. Cost was about R1600

    Don't go fully on the loud pedal while out of boost. My brother has the 2013 3.0 D4D 4x4 Auto and i notice he does that alot. His consumption was about 7.8km/L. We then drove from durbs to st lucia and it went to 10.2km/L. Yes thats attributed to the open road but he also was more weary about how he applied power after we spoke about it.
    Its not about how fast you are but about how quick you get there...

    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.
    I have to ask the question again - are you sure that the computer is not on L/100kms??

    100% sure that its on Km/L
    valid question though


    I also calculate the consumption manually at fill up and it does tally.

    I have the 3.0 d-4d 4x4 Auto with 34000Km on the clock, the best consumption I achieved was 8.9l/100km (8.42km/l) the worst was 11.87l/100km (8.42km/l) that was towing a horse box with 2 horses loaded.
    My average is 10.58l/100km (9.45km/l) that included towing a horse box twice a week for a total distance of about 150km.

    Very true! If that turbo spins up the consumption goes up, sometime extremely, depending on your foot!

    Die$el/PietOos, I did that a lot on the hover to compensate for the turbo lag. Since I got the tuna, I almost forgot about the need to do that, just so much more responsive and more power. So i doubt that it will be a problem. maybe just a heavy foot in general till i got used to the power

    I really suspect the injectors, no 2 specifically. The mechanic showed me on the computer that it is not what it should be. The control system is trying to push it to the required level, but then pulls the others down to even them out. Will injection cleaner help or should I try to have it cleaned? Cannot afford a new set now

    I would start with the cheapest solution.
    Pop in a bottle of injection cleaner with each of the next 2 full tanks

    Ideally what I do is put in a bottle with a full tank when i'm driving to durbs or so. That way it runs for a prolonged period instead of many short trips. I also try and floor it for some sections and it properly working.

    Also, you get the additives (injection cleaner) out of the system sooner. I dont like having foreign stuff in the system for long periods.

    If that doesnt work then look at cleaning the injectors. If you want I can give you my buddies details.

    Oh, also change the diesel filter! Actually, start with that!!

    I did my injectors coz its good practice.

    Ok, will follow your advice. I added a bottle of Wynns yesterday after fill-up and will do another then with the next.

    The diesel filter was replaced with the service two weeks ago, did a full cambelt service. Diesel pressure checked out fine yesterday on the computer.

    I fear that people driving Toyota Fortuners do not know what URBAN means

    Terrible consumption we get on these D4D's. Especially if you hook up a caravan.
