Well, slowly but surely I am learning about cruisers. It has been said now that the deisels are more fuel efficient than the gas engines.
What years are the deisel available in a wagon?
what is the most fuel efficient deisel?
A friend has a B3 deisel and claims to get 32mpg...is this possible?
please help me learn about this new interst I have taken in TLC's

If that kind of mileage is happening on a regular basis why is it that I am hearing from some folks that TLC's only get around 13MPG???????

Maybe 13L/100kms

13 MPg, maybe in 2nd gear on the highway!!!
I've never heard of mileage that low from a toy diesel

I average around 35mpg

17.4 liters/100 km = 13.5180795 miles/gallon(US)

That seems super low, anyone know what is going on???

I thought that TLC diesels were BJ's

There were no Canadian -diesel- Cruisers imported after 1987, so maybe it was an FJ62, 6 cyl gas motor and auto tranny...

does the fj60 and 62 come with the B or L deisel???

F means gas motor, the F, 2F and 3F. The diesels are the B - 3 litre 4 cyl, the 3B - 3.4 litre 4 cyl, and the 2H - 4.2(?) litre 6 cyl. A diesel Cruiser will have either B or H at the begining - BJ or HJ. The Gassers start with F -

Check out Rob Mullen's excellent TLC FAQ if you haven't yet - http://www.off-road.com/tlc/faq/index.html

I thought I posted this somewhere but i'll post it again:

BJ 40 4 speed 13L/100kms
BJ 42 4 speed 13.7L/100kms

FJ 40 18.6L/100kms
FJ60 17.4L/100kms

AFAIK L (1L, 2L, 2LT, 3L-overseas only?) engines are only found in Pickup in Canada but are found in Hilux overseas.

a stock bj40/42 will get 30, plus or minus a couple. some say 35, I remember one boast of 42(but that was in a for sale ad so was likely bs)
mine got 30 till I put the 33's on now it's down to 25 or so.
I've heard bj60's getting 27 roughly . this is all with the 3b diesel, (the "b" is a bit of a dinosaur, hard to get parts for, the 3b is its way more common replacement)
can't speak for h diesels.

nothin that works

The L engines get better mileage but have less torque and HP (smaller displacement)

but that is for the pickup

I think part of the confusion is stemming from the addition of the L motor in the mix. Comparing a pickup with a small L motor to a Land Cruiser wagon with a 3B is apples to oranges. My BJ70 gets +/- 28 mpg with 33s and 4.56 gears. I once had a Mazda 2wD pickup with a diesel that got 48 MPG on the highway, but I wouldn't compare them.

The best place to learn about all things Cruiser is on the Land Cruiser Mailing List. I belive you can link to it from the Toyota Land Cruiser Association's site. Carefull, if your not a fully addicted cruiser head you soon will be (for life) if you read the list.
