    D2 TD5 fuel consumption

    Hi guys,

    Interesting topic and want to here what is yours.

    I just got mine checked today against 265/70/R16 BGF AT on Dynamic rims with my D2a 03 TD5 manual: 78L refill on 650kms short distance travelling in Sydney towns. 50% aircon is on at 19-20oC.

    So it is 12l/100km.

    Is that too bad?

    That looks pretty normal. I typically average 11.5 - 12l/100km around town, Charlie is an Auto on 245/70s and wears roof bars. Over 8 years and 78k km its 12.71l/100k which includes towing a 2t van and some long trips at max weight and a roof basket.

    cheers

    Are you correcting a percentage for tyre size?

    I guess you are to get 12l per 100.

    I used to get 11.5 when Mine wasn't modified.

    I don't know now as it is a bugger to calculate with the 150l tank as it can vary by 5+ litres depending on final clicks..

    I have never gotten mine d2a manual TD5 under 13l per hundred, so much throttle, loving the turbo spooling and power

    My auto was pretty consistent with 12l/100km with a bloody big parachute on top but I haven't checked for a while.

    Calculate it as total fuel used over a greater distance (say 5000kms) and the 'final clicks' bit becomes insignificant.

    You are a lead foot but!!

    On highway, standard size tyres, and a gentle right foot I got 10.25 L/100k in the suburbs. After a few mods, the economy seems to be better.

    D2 TD5 fuel consumption

    Re fuel consumption - I have a long commute each weekday to work and return. Averaging a 180km round trip every day on a mix of regional highway and outer suburban roads. My diesel fuel economy is steady between 10.4 to 10.8 L/100kms week in week out... . My 1999 D2 is tall, running 235/85/16 on standard LR steel wheels. Add a suspension lift, roof bars, fitted with a mesh tray and basket. NB: a Hunter Di C6200-4 ratio interface unit is installed to correct the road speed signal for the larger tyres.
