Re: The Future of Patrol4x4.co.za? Next 10 years.

As a relatively new "newbie" I have personally gained a lot from the forum. The offer of Ian (John's comments noted) seems to make absolute sense and my vote is that we go that route. Lets avoid the commercial aspect other than maybe (suggestion?) to allow links to be loaded under Ian's control to c...

Re: Alternator and battery box

DITTI TO: "As a disclaimer I am a self confessed electro-ignoramus." On my previous 3.0GL I started having ABS and airbag warning lights whilst in Namibia. Never battery/charging light. Long storey short apparently the alternator was periodically not putting out 13 Volt but (seemingtly more importan...

Wiper blades

My "new" wiper blades have perished after +/- 14 months since replacement. I have tried to buy the blades themselves (silicone if I recall correctly) as I did for my other vehicles. Autozone tell me that they no longer supply this product.

Re: TYRE WIDTH/TYPE VS FUEL CONSUMPTION

I am no expert but lots of small things make a difference. I have a 2000 Citroen C3 diesel that comfortably does 20km on 1 litre at 130/140km/h. But hit the southwester or southeaster near Cape Town and that easily drops to 16/17 km litre. I have noticed on my Y61 3.0l that a side or front wind whil...
