Re: Toyota Landcruiser 4.2lt diesel OR 3lt turbo diesel...
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).

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
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
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
