Recently I have been considering my options with respect to buying a second hand 100 LC. I have been considering the various engine options 6cyl petrol, diesel, turbo diesel and V8. I have noticed that the V8 vehicles do not retain a very high market value compared to the other models. Does anyone have reasonably valid reasons why this is so. Also if I was to go down the V8 track are there any significant issues in running these motors on gas.

Dindy,
V8 petrol's are perceived to be expensive to run compared with a similar vehicle on diesel.

It's a personal thing but the the difference between the premium price you pay for a diesel and the price of a V8 petrol will usually buy a lot of fuel.

Another thing to consider is that diesels usually require more frequent and often more expensive servicing.

There's not just the running costs to consider but also the range. I'd find it annoying to have to fill up every few days in the city and even more annoying to have to carry extra jerries on long treks.

However, I'd say any 2005-2006 V8 would've dropped most of it's value already and may not drop further than a TD in years to come (relative to today's purchase price). It's hard to say for sure.

wth Rego being weight based in NSW, motor type has no influence what so ever on REGO costs.

In Queensland " the SMART STATE" rego varies depending on number of cylinders.

4 = $600 roughly

6 = $800

8 = dont think about it

Nissan 3.0 may be cheaper "after detonating" with only 2 LOL

Dont know about Audi 5 cyl might be $700 Ha ha

Pulling the van average 4.6ks per litre, without the van 5.5 to 6 ks per litre depending on conditions and speed.

I have a 2nd hand 2007 v8 and just got back from a run down from Sydney to Jervis Bay and back with a trak shak in tow. Went via the southern highlands and kangaroo Valley both ways (a few steep hills that way) and then some running around town for a week without the camper. Re-filled yesterday and consumption was 16.8L/100.

I have gotten it down to around 12.5L/100 on the highway taking it easy (no towing of course) but generally I get around 13-14L/100 on the open road.

Its standard with a nudge bar and spotties on the front.

Hope this helps.

G/Day Dindy, Don't forget your paying a lot less to start with!, New or old so the depreciation is not that bad, My V8 petrol is worth $2000, more than what i paid for it 18mths ago, Just hunt around!, Personally i would not put one on gas, if you are going for longlivety, But there are some around that don't seem to have had issues up to the 200,000km mark


Cheers Axle

from the enquiries I made a few years back, if you put it on LPG, you really should use the new sequential injection systems, as a backfire from the older type systems could be fatal to the 4.7

I have a TD myself, amd am pretty astonished at the resale for it. Seems ridiculous but I havent seen ANY selling for less than about $5K under what mine cost. Ive put 3 years and 90K's on it in that time.

Id have to agree that surely the disparity between the petrol and TD's couldnt get any wider than it is now?
