    Default 6500KM Trip Namibia

    Nice trip to Namibia.
    The 300Tdi never skipped a beat at all.
    I opened the bonnet once just to check oil. Needed about a cup full.

    Did that nice shiny turbo make a difference ?

    Yes, Not massive but i could feel the difference.
    I still switch off the aircon when overtaking a truck
    But much happier on the uphills, i find i can stay in 4th much longer now when climbing.
    And it sits on 80kph when climbing a pass much easier now, seems to run cooler ?

    Out of interest, what sort of fuel consumption do you get? Before and after.
