    Default Prado 1997

    Hi everyone,





    I have a Prado TZ 1997


    Fuel: diesel


    Capacity: 3000cc


    Transmition: Automatic


    Odometer: 124000Km


    I have worked out its fuel economy a couple of times and its about 5-5.5 kilometers in a litre. I was just wondering what others are getting.


    I got all the filters changed and i am using Mobil's oil.


    Can somebody identify a possible problem or refer me to a good jeep mechanic in Rawalpindi having good knowledge of Prado Fuel System.


    Looking forward for a reply.

    Saaduk,


    Both are very different in their ride quality and handling. Honestly I love driving both.
    The Prado is nimble, you sit high and have a great vantage. Surf hugs the roads, rides softly and is pretty fast as well. Both are auto and both are pretty fast, so really cant say which one is faster, probably prado since its lighter but at high speeds i feel more in control in surf.


    By the way am selling the surf, so let me know if anyone is interested.


    I also have a fantastic v6 3000 cc petrol 1992 Surf. Its super silent and in mint condition.





    Take care

    my 97 Prado gives me 8-9 on highways and 5-6 in-city. The trick is not to push the throttle too much.


    Previously i had a surf with the same engine. Surf is a bit more faster and responsive then Prado. Prado on the other hand is a good offroader. One thing i have noted is that when you floor both on the turns, the prado understeers and behaves like a front wheel where as surf oversteers and drifts.
