3.0 D4D vs 2.8 GD-6 fuel consumption

I have realized the current 2.8 GD-6 consume more than the 3.0 D4D engine, anybody with the same experience? I actually own both engines.

The new Fortuner weighs more +- 150kg and has more power than the older D4D considering those facts.

Not in my experience, my 2.8 is at least 2L/100km lighter on fuel than my old 3.0 D4D.

if your old fortuner was modded in suspension or slightly more aggressive tyres then not fair comparison.

2L/100km is alot.

True, had a suspension/snorkel but that still only made a +- 0.8L/100km difference.

Best I ever got with my 3.0D4d before the suspension etc was 11.5km/L where the 2.8 it is 13.33km/L. Only really tried once to do an economy run on the 2.8 as I usually have 4 bikes on the back and it is loaded to the roof :) The 2.8 figure also includes some gravel roads & stop/start cycles so I'm sure if I really try I could improve it further :)

Fortuner fuel consumption

I have been driving my new 2.8 4x4 auto for approx. 14000km now and can say that its consumption is at least 2l/100km more than on my previous Fortuner (similar specs).

A few friends also say their D4D was lighter on fuel compared to their new GD engines.
