    So I had a week of long distance driving with the V8, and boy o boy its unbelievable. I would never be able to go back to the I5

    Fuel consumption by the bully dog is estimated at 14L/100km


    but actual fill up revealed 13L/100km, so i'm going to have to adjust the bully dog accordingly. Just a note, in town consumption looks a lot higher

    It boggles the mind , mainly as on the test I used the cruise control 100% of the time on the open road. Then again I have the Bully dog set up for efficiency, so as soon as you start accelerating too hard it repremands you .

    My best with cruise control on the open road at 110km/h is 14.5l/100km

    Petrus, net ter inligting - cruise control verhoog jou brandstof verbruik!!

    Petrus, die ding met cruise control is dat die voertuig nie opsticles kan sien nie. So op no. 99 wil hy korrigeer as daar bv. 'n bult is. So word meer brandstof ingespuit om die gekose snelheid te handhaaf. As jy self die pedaal beheer, kan jy voortydig 'n bietjie ekstra brandstof deurgee om nie spoed te verloor by 'n opdraand nie. Net 'n voorbeeld!!!

    Daar is nadele maar die voordeel hy hou my intoom anders is dit voet in die hoek veral as jy moeg word op die lang pad teen die einde.

    ek stem 100% saam, maar wat wel in gedagte gehou moet word is dat die effek veel erger/negatief is op kleiner engines, meer spesifiek die wringkrag lewering, bv. met die Hummer H3 reeks sit die 3.7 liter I5 320NM uit, en tydens cruise control sal dit terugspring na 3e rat om sy spoed te handhaaf, het selfs al 'n paar keer na 2e rat gegaan . maar met die 5.3 V8 se 434NM kon ek op my gewone roete dit nog net 'n hand vol kere regkry dat cruise terugskop 3e rat toe, dit skop gewoonlik net uit overdrive(torque lock up ini auto box).

    so as jy 'n vergelyking trek, sal die 3.7 liter terugskop om by 5,000RPM uit te kom vir die nodigge krag, waar die 5.3 gelukkig is teen onder 3,000RPM.
    en in 'n verdere vergelyking my 3.0 Diesel wat "gechip" is en 470NM lewer teen 2,000 RPM, het ek nog nooit in die bakkie se 77,000km nodig gehad om terug te skakel na 'n laer rat toe vir 'n opdreande nie. Dit laat mens nogal wonder

    2003 ML 5.0 is 440nm , en ek vind dat hy ook nie sommer trug skop nie tensy dit n taamlike steil bult is of as ek die 'trailer' sleep

    The trick is to go the correct speed go get you hummer dyno tumed and where your revs powerband crosses the torque that is the most efficient you can drive. i drove at 145 with my rpm at 3200 and i did 14l/100km

    So we (Drone, Andrewfus and I) went to De Wildt the past weekend.

    the V8 perform really well off road, with me never exceeding 1,500RPM in low range to overcome an obstacle, mostly 1,000RPM was sufficient







    I really dislike the BFGoodrich, poor stopping power on the open road, and you can see the sidewall is vulnereable in the few pics.

    Obviously the landy went where I feared to go





    Did do the extreme section of the trail, and no running boards were harmed

    Interesting idea,



    I'm not a big fan of the matt brown myself, would much rather go for the camo chinese 99 or the snow camo
