    Late last year I bought a 2010 4.8 Patrol, I was going to do a diesel conversion, but after having it for a while, I am not so sure I want to anymore.
    yes it does use more fuel, but not that much more, and it has more power than any diesel ever fitted to a patrol.
    Its quieter and smoother, and probably cheaper to maintain.

    I spoke with a chap in Bright during my break who has a 4.8 Patrol, and turboéd. Goes like shit off a chrome shovel and the fuel consumption is better he says. The 4.8's are a good motor.
