Howdy all,

Hope all are well and in high spirits.

Looking at, in just a coupla months to purchase a new 4.8 GU. Does anyone own one, and can they give me feedback...Does anyone know anyone who has one who can give me some feedback. I had a test drive and CRIKEY do they move. Love some feedback. Will be used to tow a trailer weighing in at, including the trailer, approx 1.2 tonne...not much really. Interested in figures for people who have chipped and extracted etc but would love some general feedback.

Have a good one peoples!!!

Cheers

Chris.

I go fishing with a mate of mine who owns a 4.8. He's also got a 3.3 tonne fibre-glass cat which he tows ( or should I say rips along ) with it. It chews a fair bit of juice, but sits bang on 100 and actually uses less fuel per kilometer than his previous diesel used to - and does it a hell of a lot easier. Eats the beach and sand dunes too!

" actually uses less fuel per kilometer than his previous diesel used to "

Begs the question, what was his previous diesel, a 12lt detroit ?

No, the old bullet-proof 4.2 But holding the throttle hard on the floor and getting about 80 ks max - about 2.5 ks per litre. The worst the 4.8 has done is 3.6 ( without boiling it's ring out like the oiler used to!)

G'Day Chris,

The latest ones have actually lost a bit of get-up-and-go due to having to comply with Euro 3 emisions. Check the Nissan website and you will see what I mean. They have also deleted the sub tank from petrol models.

May be better to buy the last of the previous run to get the extras

Regards

Rolande
