Just Thought I'd Share This Fuel Economy Improvement

Unread post by keep_on_runnin » August 4th, 2017, 8:28 am

I've got a 2004 UZJ100R - had it for ages. Use it for black-top only. It's pretty heavy - bullbar, 285's, rear drawers, roof rack etc.
I'd heard about the poor location of the air intake - in the cavity above the right wheel facing backwards.
So I decided to modify it and run it out the front blank fog light. I was able to use all existing parts plus a bit of PVC pipe. All up cost $10.
So, I get a fresh air ram effect.
Well, the fuel economy results are worth flapping about. I've done repeat testing so I'm not flapping too soon.
I was getting 380k from the main tank. Last tank was 447k. I'll post pics if anyone is interested.
Regards,
Mark
