2.5D High Fuel Consumption

Recommended Posts

Hey friends,

I've just got my hands on my first Pathfinder, and I'm wrapped. Perfect service history, no audible timing chain noise, 145K on it and relatively stock which I love. A real gem.

After lots of reading - I did however purchase the car working under the assumption that the 2.5L TD engine is able to achieve approximately 10.5L/100km day-to-day driving, and < 10 on long distances. Mine's an automatic, and is showing roughly 14.5L/100km atm day-to-day. Not towing anything, empty car. It's a Spanish made-model. 

Given that the turbo works fantastic, solenoid all good, vacuum hoses all good, does anybody:
A - Agree that this figure is a little high?

B - If so, where should I start looking?

Any contributions or re-directs to older threads where this has already been covered would be much appreciated.

Not a lot of R51 owners on here, unfortunately. I don't know the platform or the engine well enough to speculate apart from the usual stupid stuff--check the tires, check for codes, maybe have a look in live data to see if various sensors are reading where they should.
