Newbie

Hi all I am new I will post a few pics of my Fortuner.

It is a 2008 V6 4.0L. My fortuner has a ARB bullbar, Old Man suspension, Dual Battery system, Long range tank, T-Max winch.

With all these mods do you folks think I would get a worse fuel consumption then the standard V6 I am getting around 5.5L/kay and I don't drive hard. So Im not sure if its a problem with the engine tuning or just because of all her extra weight.

Hi Trollip,

Welcome to the forum and great images.

I reloaded your images so they would show properly. Just a tip for next time use the attachments tab just above the smileys for uploading images.

In terms of your consumption, I am sure others will get back to you with their fuel consumption. Try post your question under this thread Fuel Consumption.

I hope that helps

Welcome Trollip

Your FT looks great. The V6's are very thirsty, but with the power it puts out, the extra weight doesn't really make that much of a difference on consumption.

I got a quote today for installing a rear bumper R7500 and a spare wheel carrier R3750, it looks nice and solid they sent photos but Im not sure if im allowed to post them, I mainly want the metal rear bumper for installing real nice beefy recovery points and then remove my spare wheel and install another fuel tank.

Consumption

Well come Newbie

Congrats with your Fortuner! Awsome vehicle. If you read my story how I got hold of one, it's very interesting story. Mine, 2006, A/T, V6 is also very special to me. I'm also an owner of a Landy Td5. Now you must know that they are sleeping under one roof. :lol: Consumption wise my Fortuner at a speed of 120-130km/h, depending on uphills, the best was 9.2 km/l, more uphill it went down to 8.2. BUT it's not a car for city driving. I do have a saying: If you uses it's horses, it's going to use yours!

happy driving

Fanie Marx(karoorivier).

Welcome

I drive a 2007 V6 4x4 - 5 speed auto. My long term average is 8 km/l which includes towing a venter trailer. I can get up to 9km/l on long distance without towing, two people in the vehicle. Experience has shown that cruising at 120 is important keeping the rev counter at 2000 rpm. Cruising at speeds above 120 the engine revs increase to 2400 and the consumption goes south. All in all a great car with a fantastic reliable engine.

Regards

Fox
