By Pieter 4.0l

Hi
I've done the faces of Namib in March this year. I've also got a 4.0l. Playing a lot in the dunes was awesome. Average consumption over 560km was 4.8km/l. Had 5 jerry cans on the full steel roofrack. Every opportunity I had I took the weight of the roof to empty one can into the tank. All the best 4.0liter auto is the best for the dunes. Regards Pieter

I've run 4 petrol Jerry cans in my Isuzu before I had a roof rack. I had no problems.

The sand hitting the plastic tank. It the will build up some kind of current. Remember getting in and out the car will also build up current. Best is to touch the body of the car before opening a petrol cap.

But it's very unlikely you will set the car alight in those conditions. As it's well open and almost always a little wind passing by.
The fuel storage has a brass nozzle. do you think it may be safer connect a wire between that and the body of the vehicle?

I took 5 jerrycans of diesel in the vehicle.
PRA, that is the nice thing about Diesel. safe enough to carry in the cab but would still prefer not to even if i was ruining the diesel. The diesel is also more economical from what i understand.

Wow that is a lot of fuel. Guessing you have a 4l petrol.
What distance should you be able to cover?
What roofrack do you have?

I have to agree. I unfortunately do not know what my consumption is going to be dune driving. normally get 7.5km/l on normal road and gravel travel.

From Windhoek we go to Aus and will fill up there. no point in carrying the extra fuel for that portion of the trip. I also do not know the expected distance to be travelled besides being told there will be lots of playing in the dunes and for that i think the consumption goes up considerably.

I have a front runner wind Chetha.

and it is the 4l V6

I took 5 jerrycans of diesel in the vehicle. I made a steel frame to hold the jerrycans in position. The frame was secured to the jump seat fixings in the back. I still have the frame.

I used 98 lt total from Luderitz to Walvis Bay.
