Fast becoming our most popular engine conversion, the Cummins 4.5L is a reliable, efficient and powerful option for daily driving whilst having more than enough capability to tow with ease.
One of the most frequent questions we get asked about this conversion, is ‘what is the fuel economy?’. The answer always leaves clients pleasantly surprised! The expected economy range in your average Nissan Patrol or Toyota Landcruiser set up to tour the country is approximately 10-12L/100km, depending on your individual set up. Regardless, these figures will be much better than the late model V8 Landcruisers, or standard engines like the ZD30, TD42, 1HZ etc with an identical set up.
