Re: Lifted 33's

That's interesting that the HiLux had the most difficultly, but then low range gearing is not as good as the ranger and no diff lock, OK then maybe not that surprising after all.

Re: Can the reverse sensers be turned off

Did the trailer have LED lights? The ford patch lead for LED lights will disable the reverse sensors. If the trailer had globes the the system should automatically disable the reverse sensors.

Also Ford bids for government, mining and council contracts more than Mazda, so filling those would impact there supply to the rest of us.

Re: PX Ranger Aerial

Still very small, fits under the garage no probs.

The only difference is with the standard aerial on FM radio would show program and song info, it doesn't with the Mazda aerial.

Those that have the Territory aerial do you still get the station info?

GRPAXTO, yes that is way more satisfactory for height without compromising it being ripped off.

This is the Mazda 3 arial. It doesn't have the mushroom base.

Re: Fuel Consumption

It's not too bad as a guide, I all ways work out liters in, by klm's traveled per tank. Sometimes my average fuel consumption is over what I am using, but mostly it's under what I am using, so it's generally a little optimistic.

4,500 klm's so far and still averaging 10l/100klms (3.2 auto), that's around town mostly shorter trips as it hasn't been used much lately. I'm pretty happy with that so far.
