Re: Opinion of what she is worth

I do have a aluminium TJM so it doesn’t weigh too much but no roof rack. Yesterday travelling from Wakkerstroom to Hluhluwe I averaged 15.9l/100, or 6.3km/l over the trip sitting mostly at 130-140 indicated speed. Tyres pumped 2.4 front and a bi Party of 4 with luggage but not weighed down at all. I...

Re: Opinion of what she is worth

I have been really keen to test consumption since I have had her charged. Keeping to the speed limit resulted in 17 l/100 tested over 110 km trip on N17 to Kinross Sasol. Then travelling at a brisk pace, around 140/160 over a further distance of 159 km consumption was 17.3 l/100 with an incredible w...

Re: Steering shudder on braking

I must say I like the idea of the air suspension, especially the available lift but only when required. In this link it shows it quite well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEHOSiwohMQ But this I imagine will easily cost 50 to 60 k to do which is why its not going to be done anytime soon. Gremeltech ...

Re: Opinion of what she is worth

There is no dispute that the Patrol will go if you push the pedal to the floor, and while I agree that she will do 160 relatively hassle free, in my case I feel that I am pressing the accelerator far more than I would like too. And hills tend to sap all that momentum rather rapidly. There comes a po...

Re: Opinion of what she is worth

Biggles addressed that in his experience the filter is up to the task.

I too would be interested in his experience as to the frequency he has felt the need to clean it.

Hopefully he will enlighten us.

Re: Opinion of what she is worth

I am in no way defending RGM. In fact I was merely providing an objective view. Your post, to any reasonable person.. ascribes the failure to them having fitted a component to your vehicle and further that that component is not up to its function. Whereas incorrect application, ignorance and neglige...

Re: Opinion of what she is worth

Before the conversion and even now

Cruising speed seems best at 3000 rpm in 5th

I am speaking with a pretty standard set up, anything less than 2500 rpm feels laboured to me.
