Argh! I took off the plastic wraps, save for the one under the glove compartment. Was really partial to getting the bluish green or silver one, but my brother talked me into getting a black one, since we haven't had any black car yet. Yeah - the black color needs more care and attention, scratches and dust easily show. Am going to bring it to Ziebart for a Diamond gloss paint protection as soon as I have enough funds. Am also thinking of getting "leather" seat covers from Seatmate.Originally Posted by carolco
Yeah, I wish there'd be a local Tucson club soon, I would surely join.
I think the 4x4 has the trip computer integrated with the digital trip meter which also shows how many more kms you can run before you'd need to fill up again, as is the case with the newer higher end vehicles from other makers. Unfortunately, our 4x2 doesn't have this feature, we only have the digital trip meters. What I do is - Fill the tank up - Full (Sagad), reset the trip meter to "0", drive around for a week or so, or until I have 1/8th tank of fuel left, in which case - I'd go to the same gas station (using the same fuel), top off my tank again to Full level (sagad again), take note of the actual number of liters filled, use this to divide the actual number of kilometers you've ran from your last fuel up. This would give you a more accurate fuel consumption reading. I would then reset the trip meter to "0".
Since I got the tuc last Jan 25, these are the fuel consumption readings that I got:
8.4kms/liter = Mixed Highway and city drive (Tagaytay weekend, all around Manila)
9.2kms/liter = Mixed Highway and city drive (Trip to Angeles, daily trips around Manila)
7.1kms/liter = City driving
All my trips are done with the a/c "on". I consciously try to shift to a higher gear as soon as possible, but sometimes I forget to keep the rpms below 2k to save fuel. At 2k rpm, and on top gear, I get a speed of 70kms/hr.
BTW: I got the "Cayenne" comments from 3 people already.
