Don't have a paj, but I'd suggest that's quite a good result.

Tank size is 92 litres, to work out l/100ks you need to how much fuel you used (litres needed to refill to full) to do 677km.. the low fuel light coming on dosen't tell you a lot unless you work out how much is left in the tank when it comes on( this can be anywhere between 5 to 20 litres depending on what the manfacturer thought was a safe reserve amount). If you had run it dry to do 677 ks your figures would have been around 13.6 l/100, if you had around 10 litres left this would have dropped to around 12l/100.... not bad for a 6 cylinder around town.

Greendog, divide fuel used by km's, multiply by 100.

ie; 78.1/677 = 0.11536 (which is liters per k)
Multiply by 100 (to change to per 100k)
= 11.536 L/100ks (rounds off to 11.54 l/100k)

I would have to say these are excellent fuel figures for around town driving for a 3lt 6 cylinder 4wd. My mates 1990 Triton (same engine and trans) gets around 12l/100ks on the open road (unloaded etc) and loaded up or off road it can go up to around 16L/100ks.

Hi greendog.
I had a 89 v6 paj & recorded similiar fuel cons.
I changed the computer which resulted in more power & fuel economy was great unless u drove over 3000 rpm. Above that figure the economy dropped by 3lt per 100k.
Regards Vince.

G'day,
l had a 95 V6 pajero and l found that if l used premium unleaded l would get between 50 - 70k's more out of a tank, it is about 5 cents per litre dearer so it works out pritty good value, it is also a lot better for your engine, worth a try anyway! Also do not put it on gas, a friend did and he had nothing but trouble with it and it still cost him about the same to run it. Hope this helps. Regards........Stuart

My V6 3L pajero with roof racks and pond always ontop gets around 400litres in the city and about 600 - 700 on the highways. When i push the car over 3000rpm on the highway, I notice the fuel guage will start to fall quiet quickly. If i sit on 100 or 110 my fuel figures are reasonable. I know i have more wind resistance but could anyone tell me why my figures are alot higher than greendog.
