The cruiser as long as its the turbo diesel, direct injection (4.2td), be aware though that this model has inherent "sag" with the IFS suspension, so if buying secondhand then upgrade the torsion bars(and factor this into your buying price).

Tow ball weight, is tow ball weight included in caravan weight when attached to car I am towing with a Toyota Diesel Turbo Prado 2004. Tow ball weight 250, Caravan Weight 2620kgs


No as it is part of the car not the caravan. The weight is minimal anyway. You are measuring hitch weight, the amount of force exerted downwards (hopefully) on the rear of the vehicle.

Tow ball weight for 1998 105R SERIES LANDCRUISER toyota


most tow bar specifications state 300-400 kgs is the maximum weight allowed ( best if the toyota is a long wheel base )
if you have something heavy on the bar you should be using load lever stabilizer bars from the bar to the "A" frame of the towed unit
these effectively reduce the weight on the ball by transferring the load to the vans wheels and the toyota front wheels
they reduce sway from uneven roads and passing trucks, improve driving stability on the toyota and reduce the load on the toyota drive tires
you measure the tow ball weight by lifting on the ball coupling of the van
best talk with bar specialist fitting shops and retailers that sell van accessories
don't forget you are legally limited by the weight you can tow by the vehicle towing specifications and for most late vehicle that tops out at 3000kgs --early vehicles it is less than 2000kgs

What sort of fuel consumption can i expect from a 2006 Toyota Prado 4LT petrol 6 speed manual


best at 10 liters per 100 klms , average around 12 liters /100 klms
fuel consumption depends largely on load , speed , operating conditions , towing, highway/city, off road so an exacting answer is not possible as it all depends on the operator and the driving skills

Fuel economy HJ75 landcruiser ute 1989 with turbo


Check that the intercooler is in good condition (no cracks or leaks) and the hoses are tight at the hose clamps . Next talk to a diesel pump repair specialist as you may have to re-tip the injectors and re-calibrate the pump for the extra air that the turbo produces. Check that you have the correct turbo for the diesel
