PostSubject: Mmmm errrr another new 4by   Sat Nov 13, 2010 12:27 pm

My circumstances have changed some what, we ended up moving north but Crying or Very sad not far enough north(was VERY disappointed).I travel about 120k a day to work and back so I thought I'd be better off with another diesel.Funds would'nt allow a decent "auto" nissan or toyota diesel and I did'nt want another paj as I've just finished offloading the extras from it. So and please dont bag me as I've already copped it for it but..... I bought a 2000 mdl TD5 discovery. Only had it a few days and am very nervous buying a LR. I tell you what though it craps on the previous 4by's for comfort and extras, Yeah I know more to go wrong. I cant seem to load the pics I will get them on here as soon as I can

WHOLLY SHIT STEVE WHAT HAVE YOU DONE affraid
i thought you wen't to the dark side when you bought the pootrol but a land rover No
but to be honest it looks like a great rig Very Happy
how's it on fuel? a mate from work had the petrol model & it was very heavy. but comfort & power well lets just say i nearly sold my paj for it Rolling Eyes
but after all the bagging is over i think you will find you will have a great 4wd just remember to keep up with the services & you should be right.



p:s i noticed you like green 4wdrives mate, are you secretly missing the paj Suspect Very Happy

Lol yeah I'd have my paj back anyday. I hope its a good vehicle as I will pay dearly if I got it wrong.Its a diesel and they reckon anywhere from 750 to 1000 out of a tank, the petrols are thirsty they reckon. I'm still on my first tanks so I'll let ya know.To drive and comfortwise well it shites all over the troll and probably better than the others I've had, Well I have pretty much owned every brand now Embarassed.I'm not big on the color but......... Its done 175k so I'm hoping to get a few years out of it(I hope!)

This post is a crack up ... Laughing

I heard the deisel LR's are better than the Cruisers for fuel economy. Whereas the V8 Crusier is better than the V8 LR. Should get 20 - 25mpg easily if just doing basic city travelling.

I thought about a LR but I don't think I could handle too much shit being put on me ... you're braver than me Steve ... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Gday Scol I'm still on the same tank from when I picked it up last week but I've done so far just over 650km and I am down to a quarter of a tank. I reckon on the highway with few stops it might go 900k(I hope). I've had people tell me they get around 1000 out of theirs and the reckon it does'nt vary much highway/city. My fingers are crossed as I will be stoked to get that sort of k's

Its a 95l tank mate. I filled it tonightand I got 720k for 79litres, is that good do ya think?. I think it would get better on the highway with only a couple of stops.

Yup!

11ltrs/100k or 27mpg. The Prado does a bit better but for an older vehicle that's pretty darn good!

It's close to what I used to get with the 3ltr V6 but only on a trip and not towing ... would get 12ltrs/100k. Towing the CT I would get 14ltrs/100k.
