    Default 2.4 GD6, how many kilos?

    There is a D4D thread regards kilo's but I couldn't find anything on the 2.4 GD6 motors.

    So how many kilos does your 2.4 Hilux/Fortuner have on it now?

    Mine is a March 2017 d/c 4x4 with 79k so far. Loving the car still.

    That's very impressive figures, actually amazing for a full sized working bakkie.

    How many other bakkies can match that economy??

    I suspect I might have a problem? I have done 13000km so far, I am one of the most economic drivers I know, I struggle to get 10km/l on the open road at a steady 120km/h, yes it is the AUT and 4x4, and yes I have one size larger BF's, did not think it might have such a huge influence but I am not a happy chappy, I specifically bought the 2.4 cause I thought the fuel economy would be much better than the 2.8 Are there any other 2.4 fans that have the same problem I have?

    My Amarok DC4motion 90kw seldom goes much over 8l/100km, but i usually travel around 100-110. 120 makes a dig difference, and over that it gets much heavier. Towing a boat up from Dbn around 11-12l/100km is about the worst I have so far.

    What size did you have previously and what do you have on now.
    Remember, larger tyres contribute to higher fuel consumption calculated from tank to tank and using the odo:

    1. Odo will under read compared to previous size tyres, resulting in higher consumption figures (low km recorded and same amount of fuel used)
    2. Weight
    3. Thread patter of tyre. Muds usually have a higher rolling resistance that AT's.

    Hello,

    When parked press display until settings, and hold the display button on settings in and do the changes there on the settings, to km etc.

    Totally aware of the computer "offset" now, I calculated tank to tank via GPS kilos.I went from the standard 265/65/17's to 265/70/17's BF Goodrich AT KO2

    It's definately because of the tires. I have stock size 265/65 BFG's on my auto 2.4 fortuner and it reduces the fuel economy by about 1-1.5 l/100km.
    These are very heavy tires
