I did a trip from abu dhabi to al ain and was trying different speeds to see which gave me the best mileage. Mine is 3.8 LWB 2008 model. The car was empty and just me driving.
Scenario 1: driving at 90km/h gave me 9.3km/l
Scenario 2: driving at 110 km/h gave me 8.9km/l
Any comments on whether these numbers are good or bad and I will check the spark plugs, filter and tyre pressure and oil.
What is the ideal tyre pressure for city driving? 35 psi?
I have Pajero 3.5 2014 Model, Full Tank used to generally give me 450 Kilometers till the Fuel Tank used to start empty indicator.Nowadays at only 350 Kms it comes to empty indicator starts,
I tried to put some fuel boosters available in the Petrol Stations, But cannot see any improvement, Can anyone advice , weather I require Engine Tune up, I have completed 138000 Kms,
Otherwise the Car is very good and excellent fuel efficeincy this started from this May. Would appreciate any inputs
New to the forum and and excited about being here. After of contemplation and digging around. I decided to get a Mitsubishi Pajero SWB 3.0 2004 (Top) as a first car in the region. I wanted to keep costs low while learning my way around the desert and sand driving. I believe I made the right choice after ruling out Wrangler's and Xterra due to ownership cost and the difficulty in finding a good example within a low budget.
The car I have shortlisted has 230,000km but seems well maintained with regular fluid changes. It is currently owned by a friend and was driven by his wife.
I have a few questions:
1. Does the 3.0 engine on the SWB do well in the desert. Not dune bashing, just camping and stuff. More of a desert learner car.
2. Are there any quirks in this car that I should know about.
3. I read about the rear bumper working as a scoop. Is there a replacement or fix that I should consider?
4. Any other off-road tips/mods that I should consider to protect and prolong the life of the vehicle.
Thank you in advance!

During my last desert drive while climbing a steep hill, I was on 4H with manual tiptronic on 1st gear. However as we had gained some speed and had reached near the hill top the tiptronic would automatically upshift from 1st gear to 2nd gear causing a tremendous loss in power and subsequently speed. So basically it's not holding the 1st gear as long as I wish. Later I noticed that this happens when the speed reaches 50 km/h mark.
Anyone has any suggestions on how I can manually override this automatic shift in tiptronic mode especially for steep climbs.
