What sort of economy are people getting towing a 2.5 tonne van with a Pajero with the 147 Kw/441Nm diesel please? Also is there a lift kit available for the NW model?

Hi Bruce,

Not sure on the fuel economy but if you check out the Pajero forum, you will be able to search all the diferent options re a lift, which there are quite a few.

You could ask there about the economy, they may give you the answers you are seeking.

Tanks (Thanks) annoys me when on this site you cannot go back and correct your mistakes.

can't comment on the new-spec diesel but I've seen 19L/100km from the older 3.2-litre in mixed terrain, you will see better in Melb/Syd conditions. But, good as it is, there's NO way I'd swing 2.5 tonnes from one... it is at the edge of its comfort zone at 1750-2000kg.

Heavier (not necessarily taller) springs are a very good idea to reduce rear-end sag and 50mm lift is a great ida under any 4WD, I reckon!

Hi Bruce,

We have a Pajero Auto diesel...2011 model, and own a van which weighs just under 2.5 tonne. Have not towed too far as yet, just a couple of trips up and down the Coast of NSW but so far find we get around 16 to 18 litres per 100kms, depending on road, prevailing winds etc.

It tows this weight without any problems and is rated to tow 3 tonne.

Economical vehicle when not towing also....around 9 litres per 100kms with roof racks on top.

We love it...plenty of features for the price and comfortable to travel in.

Regards,

Heather
