Default Navara D22

Hi guys new to the forum and thought id post up my Nav

Nissan Navara D22 3.0Lt TURBO Diesel.
Picked this vehicle up in December 2010 about 3 weeks before Christmas, had 130XXX kms on the clock, was completely standard, i did a trip down to becs grand parents place in a little country town call Walcha near Tamworth NSW. I kept a KM Reading and worked out when i got back she averaged about 8.9L per hundred over a 1380Km Trip, was very happy with how it performed however the Suspension is in need of some urgent attention

Mods so far

TJM T15 Steel Winch Bar
TJM 9500lb Ox Winch
TJM Airtec Snorkel (was fitted when i purchased vehicle)
IPF HID Spot Lights

Allied 16"rims with Cooper ST 265/75.
2.5Inch mandrel bent exhaust sytem but a 3inch mandrel bent exhaust with a 3inch dump pipe is on its way

mods to come
Canopy with internal Frames and 2.5M Awning
Dual Battery System
Outback Twin Roller Draw System
Rear Step Towbar
Fingers crossed some custom Sliders

no the standard the suspension was too soft, like on my trip i found i was hitting the bump stops alot on the front, thats why i went for the suspension, made such a difference to the vehicle as in its drivebility.

You're not wrong! I do plenty of highway miles and i don't think i've ever gotten below about 10.5L/100km... leadfoot much?

haha, thanks guys on average (and im not pulling your leg) around town which is 22kms from home to work i average about 660-680kms before my fuel light comes on and i fill up around the 700km mark and do a quick sum up in my head and on average its always around the 9.4 to 9.7lt per hundred, but i was very happy with the 8.9 over the 1380km trip.

my previous car was a Nissan Patrol GQ Petrol i had every accessory i could buy and the best i could get was like 18-20lt per hundred so this is much better
