Mitsubishi Pajero 2016: Why is the GLX diesel using so much fuel?

Asked by Andrew Hemer

I've just bought a new 2016 Mitsubishi Pajero GLX diesel auto. It's a lovely car to drive, but I find the fuel economy poor. I previously owned a Toyota Landcruiser Prado KDJ150 auto and the 3.0-litre engine was strong and regularly returned 8.2L/100km. The new one struggles with the slight whiff of a hill, and only returns 8.5 L/100km. As it has only done 10,000km I just hope like a good red, it improves with time.

Mitsubishi claims an average of 9.1L/100km, 8.0L/100km on country driving and 11.1L/100km around town, so at 8.5L/100km it's on the money fuel-wise. The lack of power does seem an issue and I would have it checked by your dealer at the next service. After 10,000km it should be performing near its best.
