    mga masters sa tsikot,

    can i ask for your help and sound advise. my friend is selling me his nissan patrol 1995 model. its flat roof, original left hand drive (galing middle east ata ito), the engine is the gasoline version of diesel patrol engine. okay naman ang itsura and mukhang well maintained. kung alam ko lang paano mag post ng pics, i post ko dito. price is okay (very okay). auto 4x4 pa. also, three rows of seats all facing forward. and all power. this is similar to the version we see the UN use in iraq. baka galing iraq, ito, hahahaha :D

    my only concern is gas consumption and mileage

    what can you guys tell me about this model and version? okay ba ito. astig ang itsura eh.

    well astig tlga yung itsura nyan. yan yata yung flat roof na bilog na yung headlight eh. Nissan engines have a reputation of being gas guzzlers pero maganda and matibay ang nissan engines. Palipat mo tong thread na to sa nissan forums para mas matulungan ka.

    kicker 15 -- tama ka, bilog yun headlights and mukhang matibay yung makina.

    mbt - tama ka, mukhang 4.2l ang makina.

    paano ba malipat ito sa nissan forum? pasensiya na kayo sa wrong posting ha, newbie kasi

    how is the condition of the interior? ito ata ang unang bumibigay sa patrol.

    since this engine was not released locally, kumusta ang availability of parts?

    luckytruck -- interior is great. like new i mean halos walang gasgas and panels. as for the engine, compatible ang parts sa local nissan. for example, the fuel filter is compatible with the sentra. other parts (fan belt, fan, spark plugs) are off the rack in any auto shop. bilib na bilib nga ako sa pag ka alaga. would you believe, all the straps buo pa

    glennSter - good point. actually pina tignan ko ang puede daw. i mean the gasoline engine is swak na swak sa size and placement of the diesel engine. pina estimate ko and about PHP 100T daw. i dont know if this is accurate

    anyway, i was also thinking of the hassle of changing the engine, i.e. ancar clearance, new registration, etc.

    pero, kung diesel lang ang makina, the best, heaven yung sasakyan

    paano ba mag post ng pics. i took pics of the car to drool over it, hahahaha
