    Help choosing a new wagon - Vitara, Pajero etc

    Looking at selling the Hilux and getting something that's cheaper to run. Would like to be able to retain some off road ability, mostly just light stuff. I don't go out of my way to do four wheel driving anymore. Been thinking about getting a Vitara/Escudo, Pajero or something similar. Thinking of going petrol. Don't really know anything about these kinds of vehicles. What else is available in this class? Are there any time bombs I should steer clear of? Looking to spend between $6-8K if I end up selling the lux. 99% of my driving is on road.

    If a diesel lux is too expensive then pedal power will prob be your only option.
    By the time you work out any mpg saving you have well eaten it up in the difference in fuel costs.
    What are you getting out of the Lux and what engine?

    2.8 gets about 350-400KM out of a tank. Might help if I ditch the mud tyres and steel rims. And get the injectors recon'd. Maybe. Rego is a fisting.

    When I went from alloys and little road tyres to steel rims and 31" MT's it felt like I was dragging an anchor. Lost 100km per tank. I shit you not.

    Yeah mine will average 10.9 or 11.3 again depending on mood. Can nanna it but I hate those fuckin camper vans and loopys on the coast. They are on holiday so they think everyone else is and they can pissabout.

    Yours must be a manual to get those kms.

    Old man gets almost 800 out of my Navara.. I get 600 if I'm lucky.
    No speeding - 100km
    Most variance in fuel consumption is between stationary and 100km.
    The black boxes that quote better mileage do it mainly from acceleration - get you there in 1/2 the time, use 1/2 the amount of fuel getting there. Long distance cruise is the same
