the patrol 3 litre turbo diesel gets approx 11litres for 100km, can anyone confirm that the 78 series 4.2 diesel turbo diesel gets 14 litres for 100km. This is an average of country and city driving.

Wish I got 11 litres/100kms!!!

Best i've had is 11.3 and typically 12.0 for a mix of city and freeway driving. Haven't had a country run without the van, but typically get 15.7 l/100km when towing 1.6T at 100km/hr.

Cheers

Captain

Im in love with the 78 series turbo diesel, but love is blind. I want to make sure im not getting bent over and have the dealer whisper torque figures into my ear, all the time preparing me for sales shaft.

Truckster your web site talks about the fact that you were actually looking for a Troopie and only bought the Nissan because it was cheap.

True or False ?

Hi people
Just thought I'd put my two bobs worth in. Our 98 300Tdi disco gets 11.5 L/100k towing camper on a trip if I dont get on its case. And thats with no electronics in the fuel system to stuff up.
Question. are the 3L nissan's common rail injection???
Cheers, BP
