    What did you do to your GU today?

    Installed provent 200 catch can, seems to be working fine.
  2. Ok just filled up getting 7.3km/per ltr which is 13.69ltr/100km still not good but is getting better, there was a 200km of highway use in this. My old GQ was getting11/100 and that had shitty under powered 2.8ltr TD engine with steel every thing on it. Its running those Bridgestone Duellers A/T atm so there history when they wear down, going to put Yokohama Geolandar HT/S on it then. paul
  3. Well I might but some tractor tyres on it to improve fuel economy. motor probly blow up then haha. Well on the plus side its just not me then, BP shares here I come. I'll be going up to 32" or 33" tyres down the track which might help it a little. I new wasn't good when we filled it up twice in the 1st week. Time will tell. paul
  4. New 2015 Nissan Patrol (2100km on the clock), loves a drink of fuel. 15.72ltr/100km nothing like what they say when you buying it 10 to 12ltr per 100km. Its a manual to which should be good better than the auto. The wife drives it all week and she not heavy footed maybe I should of got the Toyota Prado hmm iam not happy chappie. Hope it improves with age or its out the door cause at this rate it will be to expensive to run. Time will tell. paul

    Finished installing x2 camping lights/ reversing lights which runs threw a rely & switch. Made a bracket with a 25mm off set to raise the lights to nearly above rear toe -bar out of 40mm x 3mm aluminium about 400mm long. Screwed it up across x2 rear bumper bar screws, solid as.
