Just put the UNICHIP into the truck, Patrol 4.8 petrol, and it has made a great difference to the power and also the fuel consumption which i was really looking for, at this stage it has been just a small test the weekend 350 k and used 72 L that is 4.94 K to the Litre and have added roof rack with spare up top and at back also with all recovery gear etc and towing the camper trailer used to get average 4.5 without rack & tyre and towing so quite pleased with the result so fari had been hoping to get about 5% and looks like might be 10%

Hi 10 Para, If Floyd took note the load you guys travel with,He would see why you need a 4.8GU.Let me know when you are coming and we well catch up.I well check to see if pub is still there ,as we are new to Preth.The price for the chip is out of our range(3 small boys) .We get on a good day about 600-650 from a tank (91 lts)Im happy with that
kind regards uppy

That is really bad fuel economy. If I was getting economy that bad I would sell the car. Are you sure you used 72 litres for only 350 kms? Doesnt sound right.

10 Para can you let us know when you have done a like-for-like comparison? i.e. A test without rack, trailer or load so you can compare it directly to your "before" consumption of 4.5 k/l
