    The thirsty hungy

    Got a 2001 100 series 50th anniversary with solid front. It's a 4.5L petrol auto, I've had some cars that were shit on fuel but this thing takes the cake. Still got a bike so I'll be riding that a lot more. It's mainly for towing the car trailer and some beach work. Won't be burying it in mud.

    Ordered a Rhino Pioneer top for it today. Going to mount some lights on the back to help loading/unloading the car at night. No real plans to do much else as the Commodore is killing me for money. Like it's seriously out of control.

    Can you do anything with the tunes so clean them up so they're not so ridiculous?

    Failing that I've got an LS1 sitting on the floor.

    I've always wondered about these too. 35r and standalone give better economy?

    Was going to post something along lines of a turbo will bring economy back to half reasonable.

    Has anyone Barra'd one yet?

    Fuck that. Don't plan on having it more than 2-3 years. If I end up wanting to do more I'll get a old mans TD 100 series and swap the gear over.

    Turbo'ing the standard motor intrigues me. There is an LS1 'conversion' kit but you still need to weld up new engine mounting points and do a shit load of work. I'll chuck some accessories on and see how I go.

    How many L/100 does it get now?

    This seems to have all the fruit and is 22.5

    I'll never understand the appeal. They don't tow particularly well in my opinion and holy shit the fuel is just beyond words. A mate is happy with his if he can average 20 on the highway, can run two 6 litre commodores for that.

    This is true.

    Always wanted one for some reason. Had a Prado a few years ago and wanted to do some mild off roading in that but it never happened. I don't expect to be doing much towing and I've got a bike to commute on. If it shits me I'll flog it.

    It's almost due for a fill up. I'll check.

    Why anyone would sink that much into a petrol 80 series is beyond me and I'm a big fan of wasting money.

    The 4.5 Turbo gets around 12.7L / 100 on free-way and 19-22 L /100 around town.

    It's all relative though. Before I had this I was driving a 20B with a T04Z so this is saving me money on fuel.

    If the Commodore gets better fuel economy I'll start daily driving it.

    Didn't run a whole tank as I'm driving to Jindy in the morning. Did just over 300kms from last fill and refilled with 53L. Better than I expected.

    Being 17 years old I'd chuck an Oxy sensor at it. It'll still be horrific but might improve a bit.

    My 2.5t with shit bolted on everywhere navara does calculated 11.5l/100 on 33" muddies
