hi guys on my speedo there is a dial that resets the amount of KM. its got A with the reading and you can change it to B which is a different trip reading. all that works fine but i should be able to change it to fuel log to see how many km till i have to fill up but i cant seem to change it. has anybody else had this problem and if so what was the solution?

Not all the Navara models have the trip computer. My 2011 RX doesn't.




See the Owners Manual page 2-5. (page 47 in 240)

Mine also doesn't have this feature. It's not accurate anyway - when I go to get more fuel, I always fill the car to where I can just see the fuel (allowing the foam if any to settle) and then write the km of the "A" trip meter on the docket. Then it's a simple formula:

Litres purchased divided by (km/100)

Let's say you purchased 67.5 litres of fuel and had travelled 688.5 km. The calculation would be (watch the decimal points closely here):

67.5 / 6.885 = 9.8LPHK

It's an easy trick: you move the decimal point in the KM reading to the left TWO places. Here's an actual one from my car:

1104.2km travelled
135.68 litres purchased (I have a Long Ranger tank, 150L total)

135.68/11.042 = 12.287LPHK

Is yours a 2.5 ltr, are you towing, that seems a bit thirsty.

Mine's a 2009 model 2.5L diesel, that was not towing, but I had roof bars and a basket up there which has added a bit to my consumption. Here's another one. 4 people + clothing for 2 weeks + full Engel fridge in back, Newcastle -> Launceston without refuelling:

1118km travelled
120.91 litres used
120.91/11.18 = 10.6028LPHK

Interesting, I had a 2.5 manual 2009 model and I used to get 9-10lp100klm and that was chipped. Had roof racks but no basket etc.
