That may be the CNG/Diesel ones...they smoke extra because of both fuels at the same time..


The CNG outfitted Sporteros do smoke a little more than shouldbe expected, mainly due to the fact that they were locally installed so fuel ratios could be off a little. The hi-output variants also tend to build up carbon deposits after long periods of laid back driving. That carbon deposits will then blow out as black smoke for the next 2-3 hard pulls then nothing.

Correct @ 4 years I did the decarb and full service and this would be 6 years zero issues.

Funny thing to note is that the guy doing the decarb said it was cleaner than a regular diesel engine in his experience thus far....maybe because my driving style is not laid back..

owner of a 2011 Hilux. 3.0.

6.75 years and 210,000 Km , and 720+ km for $210 fill up (7-8 days)

may not have the fully loaded features as Ranger, and Navara but they work well once you service it and maintain it. In fact most 4x4 can give you similar service once they do the required maintenance.

may buy another next year but not from local firm- TTTL

I have a 2006 with almost that exact mileage. I put about $240 to fill up from quarter tank, and I get 600+ km. I too sometimes long for a bit more luxury ( I have the basic model), but when you're using it primarily for work in a harsh environment, I get over it pretty quickly :lol:

They are excellent vehicles but I can also tell you that the cng/diesel option may not give you great savings economically when compared to cng/gas vehicles. This is because you would be using diesel at any given time with the cng.

the overall experience - performance is good, maintenance is affordable (using only genuine Toyota parts and Schaeffer's oil Products, - engine, transmission, diff oil, power steering, grease etc), reliability - South to POS every day- (most weekends as well)

those reasons I value but any 4x4 can do do similar with the right maintenance

I am considering the Nissan 4x4 Manutal Np300 or a Toyota Hilux (Manual). Any thoughts or experiences to share on the pros and cons of both these vehicles

2. For comfort, Hilux and Nissan.

3. Power for hauling heavy sheit around Isuzu and Dodge Ram

4. For going places that only heavy machinery could go, Jeep Wrangler, nothing else I drove comes close, no not even them hilux with snorkel and big tires, leave that at home and don't mamaguy yourself.

The new Rangers are pretty decent as well but they haven't seen any hard work yet so I can't comment but the 2.2 engines are nice for the size and go really far on one tank.
lucky u ..i get head cracking issues n pass thru bout 7 shitty mechanics n eventually change engine yrs later .. after sounding like a tractor
