4.5 + 4.8 GRX

Postby Ruan Scholtz » 03 May 2016 13:38

Dagsê lede,

Hoe lyk jul petrolverbruik vir die 4.5, asook 4.8 motors op die Patrols?

Is die verskil tussen die 4.5 en 4.8 oogskynlik en die moeite werd?

Lekker dag

Ruan

I think a minimal difference in consumption between the 2. but I think the 4.8 is fractionally better consumption wise and power wise too

But what do i know.... I'm a diesel head...hahaha

trying ... to compare apples with apples.....

standard 4.8 auto vs standard 4.5 auto:

Fuel consumption: Very little difference if driven in the same fashion
Power: 4.8 = better power delivery due to engine power and gearbox ~196 vs 156 kw + 5 vs 4 speed auto
Interior: 4.8 /2005 and later updated more "modern interior" ; The interior of the 4.5 will age better due to more durable material used.
Reliability: Both vehicle are very reliable provided that they are well and regularly maintained. The 4.5 might have the edge in this department due to the fact that it has less electronics.
Cost: As per Tinus / Overall the 4.5 will be the more cost effective vehicle option i.e. purchasing cost, insurance, maintenance.

General: The majority of the 4.5 appear to have manual 5 speed boxes whereas on the 4.8 you will get them mostly in the 5 speed auto version (manuals are rare)

Happy hunting :thumbup:

Tydens ons onlangse toer na en deur Lesotho het ek tussen 17 en 20 lt/100km met my 4.5 handrat gekry en my maat het tussen 20 en 23 lt/100km met sy 4.8 handrat gekry.
die 4.8 het duidelik meer krag en dit is makliker om verby te steek met die 4.8. Met die 4.5 moet jy meer met die ratte speel.
Persoonlik sou ek die 4.8 verkies.

Middag Menere,

Ek waardeer al die kommentaar baie en glo dis hoekom dit so kardinaal is om aan so forum te behoort vir al die in en uit (Tenminste veral dat ek nog nuut is tot die 4x4 wereld).

Ek wil nou so bietjie verder navorsing doen en behoorlik die hok skut.

Ekt nou al opgetel dat die GU uitgekom het met die ZD30 motor in RSA, maar is nie `n baie betroubare motor (Korrigeer gerus) nie en dus doen ouens ombouings na die 4.2 SGL motor toe en sit soms `n turbo ook by.

Verbeter dit enigsins die brandstofverbruik wesenlik?

Ekt myself tans `n SD33t motor in my Safari en glo dit of nie, maar op my laaste reis het ons 8.5km/l gekry ,met 33" bande en `n 175mm lig, wat ek reken is baie goed.

Alle kommentaar welkom.

Mooi dag

Die 30l 2001 tot 2004 het hulle probleme gehad maar kan maklik uitgesort word met regte goed mad man ens .

Die woorde 'Patrol' en 'ekonomiese brandstofverbruik' word bitter selde, indien ooit, in dieselfde sin gebruik.

Look at "total cost of ownership" as opposed to "fuel costs". Please include the initial purchase price and interest thereon. You will be pleasantly surprised.

I need to keep detailed records for tax purposes and have done the sums many times. It costs me less than buying a modern R 300 k turbodiesel.
