Re the recent post about MPG using Fourtraks and UK/US gallons. I decided at the time to do a MPG test, which coincided with the snowy weather, but decided to go ahead.
Most morning the truck was started up and left at a fast idling RPM on the hand throttle at about 1200rpm, to defrost. 5 situations where the truck was left at hi idle to jump start other cars. Lots of Lo range use pulling cars and other soft roaders up inclines, quite a lot of "C" class road use 4Hi/4Lo, no gritting or snow clearance, collecting office staff from a central point and taking in to work ( out in the sticks), waiting with engine running/heater on full. So MPG is suffering.
After all this, the nitty gritty , 19.291459 Miles per Gallon (UK Gallons) with a '92 Fourtrak 2.8 TDX. Better than what I thought it would be, and thats using a 50/50 veg oil/diesel mix. No problems starting, though more smoke at start up than usual !!
I am running another MPG test to get a more realistic MPG under normal conditions.
( Note - On these cold mornings , the viscous fan locked in immediatly ! ! definatly a problem there)
So post your own MPG results, with truck details and driving conditions. And yes ,I know it depends on how a heavy right foot you have and all the other variables.
'92 Fourtrak 2.8 TDX - Snowy conditions - 19.29 MPG
