    Greetings! Newbie land ako and I need help. I had just recently bought a 2nd hand japanese pajero from subic, and my diesel consumption is at 6.2 km/l. Majority of my driving is on highway. My friends are telling me that this is not normal and the consumption is rather high. Was just wondering if there is something wrong and needs checking. Also i have heard someone saying that by installing a catalyctic converter i could lower down consumption. By the way, my pajero has a 2.8l engine.

    maybe your ride needs a calibration because it is a 2nd hand in the 1st place and you have no idea how it was driven before in japan

    Agree with Johnart. Mine gets 7.2km/L city driving with Auto Tranny with 4WD sometimes engaged.

    My theory is you may be a bit heavy with the right foot

    does the fuel quality here in the philippines have an effect on the fuel consumption & performance of diesel engines in general?

    i've read in autocar that for the euro market the they only have 3ppm (particles per million) for diesel engines. while in comparison, those sold in malaysia (and even here) have a ppm of 3000!

    I did not get our actual consumption but when i drove to Baguio with a 2.8 4x2 two weeks back, we gassed up in Manila, drove to Baguio, around Baguio for one day and gassed up in La Union on our way home with 1/4 tank left (gassed around P1100.00 more or less).
