Looking at different options for my 1989 Range Rover. Want a reliable daily driver with good efficient m.p.g. I also want a non computer engine. I am all ears on suggestions. Thanks
iTS CALLED A LED FOOT. HA HA HA. I don't like to overstate my fuel mileage. I hate guys who think they are getting 50+ mpg out of their cummins. I get 17 out of my cummins, but I have a lead foot and like going fast.Yes. You should be around 25 US mpg. 30 mpg if UK gallons. Something is seriously wrong if you are 16-17 mpg in the UK.
I spun the boost pin, and dropped the star wheel down a turn or so on my 200. went from zero smoke, but zero pull under 2000rpm (difficult for hill starts and towing) to v. respinsive with a small puff off boost. well worth doing!Doesn't matter how I drive, I almost always get 25-30mpg with my 200Tdi. Anyone who says they got 14mpg in a 200Tdi has a hole in their tank. I recently added some more pre-load on the "smoke screw" to help get the turbo spooled up a little bit faster down low, which I think has helped a little. I can run 70 all day long on the interstate.
(Ignore the oil pressure gauge, swapping out sensors)
