    a fast car with a slow driving person would be obviously slower than a slower car with a faster driving person on board.

    anyway, mas mabilis ang gasoline engines but diesel engines have higher torque. (parehas na displacement I assume with or without turbo both)

    hahaha could be... male drivers in nature do drive a little bit faster than feminine driver, as what others say...

    id agree... i was just wondering though, if there is an instance that diesel is faster... as an example could also be that people does assume that Bus is faster than a car (which for me car is faster coz Bus has heavier load compared to the one being compared to)...

    Diesel engines can maintain torque at a higher speed even if its loaded.
    Normal gas engines has lower torque making a fully loaded vehicle harder to sustain speed. Madalas ka mapapadownshift compared to diesels.

    coz it seemed like that's what I experienced... my sister and I was travelling to Calamba, Laguna to refreshen along the hotsprings, I was driving an Innova (diesel) and she was driving an Avanza (gas)... she informed that I was driving so fast, when I was only driving 100km/h, same as her speed; is there an apparent reason for that, or just happen that my Innova is a 2.5 d4d engine, while Avanza, im not sure with the displacement, though... and my Innova was loaded with 8 pax, with the other car she's holding 5 pax... hhmmm....
    I think this is more of a subjective observation. Your sis might not be used to driving at 100km/hr while this is your normal travelling speed. She might be trying to keep up with you and in the process, is driving faster than she normally does.

    But if your talking about Power and/or Torque, then we can objectively say that the Innova has more power and torque than the avanza (if what your sister has is the 1.3L displacement engine).

    ilan na mileage ng ride mo? am experiencing the same squeeking sound. Just brought my ride to toyota marikina and the sa advised me to change the clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing and some rubber. They will need 3 days for that and it will costs me around 16k+. My ride is 4 years plus and my mileage is only 51k

    Hello fellow innova owners. Share ko un hard starting problem of my dad's innova J. He brought the innova sa casa but SA cannot find the problem. So dinala nalang sa auto electrician. The problem was every morning when you start the engine, click lang at hindi mag-start. Only after several tries at mag start. What the auto electrician did was replace the solenoid in the starter and simply cleaned it. It cost my dad 400 for the solenoid and 350 for the labor. The innova is working fine now.

    thats good that the problem on your (dad's) car was resolved

    if anything like that happens, you may also want to check on the battery terminal as it may be loose...

    Hi All, this is not about any D4D problem.
    I'm just curius, does Toyota Innova Dsl, HiAce/Grandia, and Fortuner G Dsl have the same Engine specs: (2KD-FTV) Direct Injection, 4-Cylinder In-Line, DOHC 16 Valve, Turbo Charger?

    If yes so does it mean the Innova have an edge over the 2 since it has lightess body wieght but having the same power?

List of Toyota D4D Probems (Choking, Hard Starting, etc.)
