    What you have there Hannes, is an old pump from another truck, that broke. They swopped it out with your truck, and now it will just scoot over to the next truck until the parts department finally wakes up, and order a diesel pump...

    Pierre I did at least see the box that the new one arrived in and so I am happy that the new one into my truck is brand new.

    Yes it does look older than 3200 km.

    So fuel consumption stays at a disappointing 3 km / liter.

    We ussed Tata 407 trucks. I will never never buy it again. In the end I almost gave it away. Bought a second hand 4t Dyna and it is running like a dream.And paid only R 130 000. Then invested in a 5t Hino also 2nd hand. What a truck!!! And only for R 300 000.
    Will never ever go fong kong again. We manufacture tombstones and that is heavy on transport. If it last in our industry it is good.

    Never a indian or chineese truck again. They are cheap to buy and expensive to keep on the road. And the down time is taking a toll on your profits.

    Why buy one of the low end trucks new, when you can buy a better brand second hand?
    Or is that also a gamble?
    Surely if you do due diligence before buying that 2nd hand you should be in the clear?

    Engel aftrr the replacement of the Diesel pump the truck is running perfectly. The last tank was 3.85km per litre at an average speed on I track of 19km per hour. So that is heavy heavy traffic work with full load.I am now on nearly 5000 km. It is obviously not long enough yet but you will have R 200k change compared to the constellation.If you are not in a hurry I will be able to give long term feedback on the 2 I am running.

    Remember... Regarding the consumption, and price of diesel...

    In the FAW, if it looks like oil, it will run on it...

    So 500ppm depot diesel is fine.

    Ja hulle loop nog laat dit bars nie so baie km nie maar baie ure.

    Die verbruik bly rondom 3.5 km per liter maar onder die omstandighede is ons tevrede.

    Die trok wat in die ongeluk was frustreer my maar dit is meer die Panel beater as die trok.

    I also hope you are keeping a check on lost downtime in your calculations, I sold trucks for 35 years, there was a reason I only worked for Volvo and Scania
    Audi A6 Avant Quattro V6 tdi ( Sold )
    VW Touareg V6 tdi ( sadly written off )
    2 x Toyota Celica GT4 Gen 6 (Sold) sadly missed
    2 x Toyota Celica Gen. 5 ( Sold ) not missed as much as the above.

    Mre Hannes. Hoe loop die FAW's nog?

    My Isuzu deal het nie gerealiseer nie. Eienaar het besluit om hom vir eers te hou.
    So ek kyk al weer na die 8 ton FAW..Hopenlik duik daar die tyd vd jaar 'n special op 2017 modelle op.

    Wel ja ek het 'n storie om te vertel.

    Almal waarsku mens teen partnerships maar mens glo mos jou partners is beter.

    Wel ons was 5 partners en na 'n moeilike maand wil 3 onttrek.
    So hulle wil hulle sureties terug he en nou moet ons alles verkoop.

    Ek het die volgende te koop.
    Faw 15.180 Dropside 2017 met 22 000km. R 225 000ex vat
    fAW 15.180 Dropside 2016 met 19 000km R225 000ex vat
    NISSAN ud 40 2011 225 000km R150 000ex vat.

    Verder ook 'n Ford 2017 DC 2.2 XL 22 000km R 320 000 incl vat

    Die FAW werk nog elke dag en ek is happy altwee is nog onder waarborg en een het nog diensplan tot Februarie.

    Om te s ek is heartbroken is nie oordryf nie.
