Toyota Fortuner 3.0 D4D Fuel Consumption

27 posts in this topic

Hi there,

I have a 2008 toyota fortuner 3.0 d4d full option done 60000 km with it

i have a question i think my multi info display has malfunctioned or is inaccurate

As when i press foot little bit goes as low as 2 km/L when i keep the engine idle it goes to 50 or even 90

But when i heard fortuner diesel gets around 10 km/L but even if i floor little bit it goes as low as 2.3

and it shows my average to be at 6.4 km/L at just 54 avg speed

Can someone tell me whats wrong

Thanks

I have Isuzu D-Max 3-Litre Turbo-Diesel. When I floor the accelerator, the reading is only 3k/litre or less, on overrun it's 50k/litre and on stationary tickover it's 99.9, so your readings don't look unusual. You should work out your average on a tankful, and see what you get. On my last tankful it was 11.29, I've had as much as 13.

The displays will not be accurate vs measured fuel usage. Fill the tank and look at kilometers driven, do math and you get accurate numbers. I have seen the display work fairly well, while cruise control is engaged, on interstate highways where you travel for hours with little interruption of traffic flow. Your reading sound normal from what I have observed.

After 7000 km mine is showing an overall average of 10.4 km/L, perhaps you need to wear lighter shoes when driving? rolleyes.gif

I do see figures as low as 3 km/L for the current usage when accelerating, it's a 2 ton truck though so that's not surprising at all.

My friend i really think something is wrong with my display as when my fortuner is stopped in traffic and its idle it shows 99.9 litrel/km when i floor little bit it goes to 20 and how in the world its possible 99.9 l/100 When the engine is idle

Yeah !! wrong place " Thailand motor Forum " is what you want, maybe.

I aIways say why do you go and buy a Rolls Royce and question what it does to the gallon or " Litre ".

My friend, every answer you've had to your original query has been logical and accurate. If you can't understand or accept what you've been told then either go to a dealer and get them to explain it to you, or go buy a donkey.

It doesn't sound like there is anything wrong to me. When slowing down off the throttle the display on mine increases from whatever it was at cruise to 50 km/L, then up to 99 km/L and finally returning to 0.0 after I have been stopped for a while. You are writing l/100 but it seems to me as if you have the display on km/L. If you think it is broken then go to your dealer to get it checked.

Got to agree Gippy, he has the readout selected to current usage. He needs to select average usage that will show around 10 KM/L

I have the same meter in my 2010 VIGO 3,0 auto 4x4 4 door. Done approx 15k km, and have looked at it on occasions. Usually I prefere the outside air temp displayed, and measure milage every time filling the tank by dividing litres on covered km. Having 2 trip km meters, I always reset one when filling up, do the same on my bikes.

For mixed city/highway driving, 13.4 is about average. Straight highway you will probably see 16 and straight city driving will drop you to around 11. I always reset my tripmeter and fuel consumption displays after each fillup.
