    This large OEM windscreen washer bottle was in danger of eating by the Grabber.

    The bodyshop man suggested a removal and replacement solution.

    The new smaller bottle is not actually mounted to anything, it is just squashed in between the battery and fuse box. Click image for larger version.

    I filled the fuel tank with diesel yesterday.

    So according to the owners manual there are 11 litres left in the tank when the low fuel warning light is illuminated.

    My Torque PRO OBD software says my fuel consumption is +- 13 litres per 100 km.
    (100 km / 13 litres = 7.69 km per litre x 11 litres = +- 85 kms range once low fuel light is on.)

    I then zeroed the Trip meter & drove round until I had driven +- 50 kms. I managed to arrange that this happened at the filling station.

    As you can see from the fuel slip the tank took 65 litres (after shaking it like a taxi to get the last litre or two)

    Numbers:
    L/100km: 12,6
    km/L: 7,9
    Kilometers: 514,0, 65 litres

    1st half of tank was driving to St Francis Bay on 33/12.5/15. second half 76 mm exhaust + egr blank and mostly on 285/75/16. no towing. and second half in town.

    even if i work in the 11.2% tyre diameter increase from standard tyre size of 245/70/16 the consumption gets to 12.3 litre per 100 km


    After all that I am happy with the consumption.

    +- 50% of the Max's drinking habit.
