If you take the petrol price at R 13.00/Liter, The Patrol at 5.5 Km/L and the "Other" vehicle at 8 Km/L

For 1000 Km traveled:
Patrol 1000/5.5 = 181.82 L x R 13.00/L = R 2364
"Other" Vehicle 1000/8 = 125 L x R 13.00/L = R 1625
Difference of R 739 per 1000 Km Traveled

With the above in mind for every 100 000 Km traveled you would pay +- R 73 900 more on fuel with the Patrol than with the "Other" vehicle - and with the absolute bargain prices you currently can get a Patrol for :
If you pay R 100 000 more for the "Other" Vehicle you could travel 135 318 Km with the Patrol before break-even
If you pay R 150 000 more for the "Other" Vehicle you could travel 202 977 Km with the Patrol before break-even
If you pay R 200 000 more for the "Other" Vehicle you could travel 270 636 Km with the Patrol before break-even
On R 250 000 more it would be 338 295 km and on R 300 000 it would be 405 954 km before break- even !!!!!!!!!

This don't even include the added costs of the breakdowns with the "Other" vehicle in comparison to the Patrol :biggrin:

Summary - I JUST LOVE MY PATROL !!!!

Owner is forum member, nic is DJP1 IIRC. also advertised elsewhere on this forum/section.http://patrol4x4.co.za/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=3515

She is pretty, but needs some TLC; couple of sweaty bits (oil leak, knuckles, t/case??) and erratic rev counter behaviour. I was interested & test drove her, but wasn't comfortable having to spend a bit of tom to get her to DD status.

Danie, the owner, bought her as a tourer but isn't spending enough time with her which is why he wants to sell.

Hi all...

New to the forum but seriously considering selling my Ford Ranger 2.5TDi (2006 model) D/C and buying a Patrol. It will be my second vehicle, to only use for 4x4 trips and towing my boat (fishing...).
Is this specific 4.8 a good buy, that is advertised here? I'm still researching the Patrols to see what is what, what's best, etc etc so am pretty clueless with the Patrols. I used to own a Colt 3.0 V6 Auto 4x4 D/C...should never have sold that...

Regards
Mike
