Thread: Fuel Consumption V6 Engine

  1. #436
    what about having a snorkel fitted on the petrol
    Does that make the fuel consumption better
    More air in to the engine
    And what would be the best octane to run in a 2006 4litre
    91 or 98 I think that's the only levels we have
    Been out of touch with the petrol after running diesels
    For many years

    I have a 03 with lift, bullbar, ARB rack and LPG. Just did a trip to Yeppoon from Brisbane and took a few scenarios loaded up with gear and 4 humans.
    Highway 350km 16.1 litres LPG
    Beach/town 288km 17.1 litres 98 petrol
    Highway 402km 13.7 litres 98 petrol

    My Prado grande 03 with some mods(lift, bull bar, mud tyres, roof rack, UHF radio). Get average 17-18L/100km with 2 adults and 3 kids plus some kids stuff at the back. Always enjoy the driving than keep watching the gauge. Expected this figure as its V6 and 4L engines. I couldn't imagine if the engineers put smaller engine to pull this#tough body, may be I will complain about performance..

    Cheers, Sam..

    They run well on either but mine seems better and smoother on 98 but the fuel consumption is about the same on both. If 98 is on sale I use that . I don't think that the snorkel made any difference to either consumption or performance- it just gets the air intake up into cleaner air and away from water [ which I avoid like the plague.]

    I have jsut got though my first 100L in my mew 2008 prado.. and am getting 25L/KM (city) based on my rouch calcs & torque OBD. It has a 2" lift, bullbar and a rhino rack alloy cage.. is that too high.. i was expecting 15-18L but reading through this thread it makes me think that something is wrong. Wheat i know to check is O2 sensors (which one??) and the air intake. Is there anything I might be missing??

    On a possibly unrelated note, I am getting a fail in Misfire counts for last/current driving cycles(calculated) but each cylinder is ok.. here are my logs if anyone is interested.

    Filled up 177L today after 1174km = 15.1L/100km
    Fuel warning light came on at 1085km.
    DTE hit 0km at 1139km.

    Won't be attempting this feat again, that's for sure.

    Funny, I always thought you had a Diesel for some reason.

    Yeah I've done something similar to that before, not a good feeling when you are sitting at lights just waiting for it to splutter.....

    Having said that though Andrew, I actually ran it to total empty - had a 10l in the boot.
    It went about 140k past 0 on the DTE.
    Still, I was trying to keep out of town as much as possible in the last hundred K's.....lol

    I thought he did too...

    I have no idea, just an assumption I guess.

    .....and you know what they say about assumptions....
