    Default Fuel Efficient Diesel Engine

    Dear Pakwheelers,

    Kindly intimate which diesel engine will be best suited for CJ7 (converted to wrangler) which may have mileage of 15 - 20 km/l.

    The jeep shown on https://www.pakwheels.com/forumreply_az_TopicID!84215~ForumID!12~pw.html

    has a engine giving 15 km/l.

    My requirements are for daily usage , not offroading.

    Expert opinion is required.

    Thanks

    Quote from the thread you linked:

    "Its powered by Toyota 3c Turbo Diesel"

    I believe there is your answer. It might be a tad underpowered but if you don't intend on offroading you should be fine. 3c-t is 2200 cc turbo if I'm not mistaken.

    Hope this helps.

    i dont think a 3CT can give anything more than 12KM/L on a Jeep. You must take into consideration the non aerodynamic shapes of Jeeps

    3CT if used in car can give around 16-17KM/L depending the driving style...

    for the kinda of Jeep you are having.. i suggest go for 2LT or a 3L (non turbo).. the reason is power to weight ratio.. CJ7 converted to wrangler weight alot!! a small engine will die down soon

    a non turbo engine will give you better millage so 2L or 3L non turbos are ur choice

    again if you get a 10KM/L average from a jeep.. ur lucky

    Thanks friends,

    So as a final decision which engine will you propose. Brands other than Toyota like Isuzu, Mercedes, etc may also be considered. The main issue is fuel consumption.

    Power may not be much, just suitable.

    Awaiting your kind replies.

    Thanks again

    Get a TD27 NISSAN. Its available at half of price of 2L and is equally good for your application.

    you're getting 15-20 km / ltr on a 3c engine (which I tend not to believe) and you're asking for an economical engine. Can it get any better than that?

    ur aim to achieve 15-20 km/ltr in a jeep is impossible
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    Akifjanjua has a complete knowledge with experience on 3CT, his opinion has a lot of weight.
    To all the extreme drivers, please come offroad like ME to keep others safe on the roads.

    there is a lot of air drag on a jeep,its not aerodynamic.Even the latest D4D engine's can not give you more than 10~12kpl.
    20kpl is not possible for a jeep.
