    Default Toyota Surf 1996

    I am looking for a surf 1996 model. In market I can find 3 kinds of engines for it

    1. 3000 diesel
    2. 3400 petrol
    3. 2700 petrol

    Can anyone guide me which one is better in terms of maintenance and fuel consumption. I will be using the jeep as daily runner.

    Also is petrol converted a good option or no?

    Look for a genuine car (no swapped / converted engines please). The diesel variant was the more popular one and so would be easier to find. Although personally i would opt for the 3.4l petrol variant.

    The 2.7l one feels a bit underpowered to me

    Any guesses of their consumption?

    Plus what issues could be in a petrol converted? I was just thinking engine is of same models so wont a petrol converted means its a bolt to bolt swap?

    Actually it would be my first 4x4 so i am very much confused and don't want to make any wrong decision.

    Diesel engines are considered as heavy duty than petrol.

    But why to consider the fuel consumption of this car with such heavy engines?
    It will hardly give 5~6 km/l I guess.
    Small size engines gives better fuel economy than bigger one. But also depends upon other workload, 4x4 usage, off-road driving, and proper maintainess.

    Earlier this year a friend bought a 96 running a diesel engine (original) with iron man suspension for 14.75 lakhs. So according to that the price tag seems a bit high for a converted car.

    As for the engine, you need to get it thoroughly checked out. Make sure it is performing well. Make sure the new engine is updated on the books. And please to confirm if it seems underpowered or not (it does to me, but you should check it first hand)
