    Diesel use may or may not have gone up a whisker just found, although approximately 25% of Friday’s test were start/stop traffic and some local highway bigger hills yesterday.
    Fill up: 292kms for 42L to the brim. (14.38/100km)

    What about this for something different MB? Have read lots of good things about using these in TD42s as they block the bypass hole which means the hot water doesn't circulate until the thermostat opens at a rated 82C.

    TD42 - All Variants Aussie Water Thermostats

    Thanks mate appreciated, did see on another Google forum them being used with good success it seemed. Have been very happy with the OEM 88 over the tail end of winter, may have to trial the OEM 82 I have ready in the back when it hits summer possibly.

    EDIT: Apologies Chrisso mate, should have mentioned I’m now trying to OEM test everything first as a base point (including the bog stock plastic air dam underneath kept In situ etc...
    Will be adding an intercooler to the old family faithful TD42T before years end too, just don’t want to skew results atm :-)

    Just found I believe an OEM quirky behaviour on these ‘Jiggle Pin’ equiped 88 & 82 thermostats folks:

    A good quick water pump cavitation rev after say 30 minutes left alone and can only assume it is Jiggle seated again from stable 89C results found again for 30 minutes thereafter.

    Love your work good Marko ! While most are trying to stop the kettle from whistling , you're fueling the fire!! Haha
    I've subscribed!

    I've read this post start to finish. I'm glad it's not only me that thought , sometimes when the temps are up she seems to sing better and feel smoother ... .

    For what it's worth ... I recall walking into Patrolapart when I bought a box of goodies for my cooling system makeover.
    And after a brief conversation about the infamous dreaded long bolt in thermo housing , he asked why I went for the 76 thermostat. I disregarded his question with a dopey "cooler is better" mindset... Thinking of it now , he may have tried to sway me for a upper centigrade unit.

    Mine cruises 78-80 most of the time and without load , always defaults to its 76C groove (idling) no matter what ambient temps are doing .

    I really have to whip it good and proper to reach 90 or beyond , by which time egts are pushing the 500C spectrum , where I usually back off , and then temps once again fairly quickly reset to 76c range ...

    I don't tow. So I don't know how it would behave in that scenario.


    Just a sub-curious-question.
    I wonder.
    Would a thinner oil in winter and thicker in summer months play much part in this cooling game ?

    Around 92 degrees is the sweet spot for performance

    And there is the definitive answer. Thanks bloke, on song as always.

    Like you @Hodge I can't flog mine much past 80, even towing and prior to the tune it barely touched 82 and maxed 450egt. W2A IC I'm guessing.
    Time to source the higher deg TS.

    Big thanks to @MB for his diligent research.

    @Touses mate, I think I’m thankfully ready to move ahead now and start looking at intercooler options for our old TD42T to try and heavy hauling tame factory Exhaust Gas Temperatures (EGT).
    Just wondering what brand Water to Air (W2A) system you might be running please mate?
    Have only briefly looked online at PWR, Plazmaman, Frozen Boost to date.
    Hoping W2A might be a good option for us too down here in the frosty mountains.
    Have decided now to keep the bonnet stock looking to draw less attention found recently to modifications so that rules out for us a Top Mount Intercooler (TMI) Air to Air (A2A).
    Also thinking that a W2A front mounted full size slimline radiator might help incoming sleet and snow better than a half size Front Mounted Intercooler (FMI)(A2A) ?
    Any advice appreciated thanks mate!

    @MB I'm running a frozen boost type 10 (I think), water cooling is achieved by 2 10" craig davies strapped to a radiator thingy that I think is an evaporative unit from a tractor AC.
    That lot is mounted under the tray along with a bosch water pump and fans and pump are switched from the dash. This to facilitate warming the great silver frog on chillyish QLD
    winter mornings. Have a temp sender in filler on the IC itself, dash mounted gauge to monitor. With the unit working the gauge needle doesn't move.
    Will endeavour to dig out the pics of the setup over the weekend. Did have to body lift by 1" to clear the IC/ plennum under the bonnet.
    @nissannewby is the go to man for the plennum if you go down that route. Keep in mind you've just done the hard yards on the TS research to get your unit to operating temp.
    I'm convinced the W2A makes mine run too cold so will try higher rated TS.
