    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Yeah Christ I saw your mileage and thought hmmm that seems excessive lol

    That's pretty good towing that kind of weight. My odometer is playing up and haven't recorded it but reckon I would be similar with my td42t towing the 2 tonne van for sure!

    I thought the same, thought yeah nah mate that's not real good to be honest. But it's impressive towing horses.

    Thats pretty good , considering the number of up hill sections even before the range , reckon it's about what i get in the old oiler with the van for the same trip , only i snail with the trucks on the climbs !!!

    Yeah its not to bad really. She tells me that was the speed limit all the way apart from the slow cornering required for horses. The best we have got from it is atound 15.6/100. The worst around 22/200. I have a few little things to change at the next service that will hopefully help. It also needs a trans service and some recall work done.

    Nissan have done it again with wheels. We dont seem to have a problem with ours, well not yet anyway. The y62 are having issues with the wheels cracking some within 30,000km from new. So would explain why some are keen to get rid of them and not ask much. I did see a set of 5 with basically new tyres a while back for 800.

    Put the horses in a float next time... you'll get heaps better economy
    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    Did some more towing over the weekend 2 horses in the horse float. 366km round trip to north of Gympie
    Seems fairly consistent as this tank also returned 19.1/100 fuel usage.
