Mate, at 1.3 t I would give it some consideration. When we brought the nullarbor
I did notice a van in the back yard(double axle one) and they said that they only did the one trip to Melbourne
in it. Regardless I had the auto serviced and the mechanic said the oil was burnt, not good for long auto life.
not to power drive, from the info I gleamed from the Jack Forum
you use a bit more fuel when used but it spends more time in direct drive third and keeps the temp down. With the old boat (only 600kg) I use to use it in hilly terrain, and if I need rapid overtaking.
Mate It could be worthwhile asking that question on the Jack forum
, but my advive would be to fit and aftermarket cooler to save grief later on, heat is the no1 enemy of autos, and its not and isuzu box but a GM one unfortunalty.
good to see the Jack still going well, mine now has 196000 ks and no major issues, the ce light is on so will most lilely need a new maf or EGR valve is seized.
But still gives good economy, recently done 337k on half a tank.
