Hello,
We're considering changing our current towcar. We've been looking at the Mitsubishi Shogun 3.2D Equippe 2007 model.
Does anyone have any experience with one of these?...towing? non towing? fuel consumption?
Any opinions would be great to help us in our decision.
Thanks in advance.
Mark & Karen

Fuel consumption 18 mpg solo average best 26 mpg auto has problem with particulate cat light coming on between 190 an 450 miles if used on short runs and cannot be run on Bio diesel at more then 5% so will be all right for next year but not future proof.

Hi Mark/Karen,
Never had a Shogun but I did tow with a Mitsubishi Pajero for a few years, (2.8 tdi automatic), as a towcar, brilliant, but fuel consumption was awful. Even solo, never got better than 25MPG and towing got approx 17MPG.


Regards, Mikey :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Thanks for your input. We're looking at the Diesel LWB model. Sounds very nice but rather concerned about the fuel consumption...not sounding good. To say we're currently getting 30mpg solo and 25-6mpg towing with the Frontera!

I've got the 2007 lwb shogun, hav'nt towed with it yet but i don't think it will have a problem. Before that i had a shogun sport and this new one is much nicer and has much more power, mpg around town is 20mpg and on the motorway 24mpg ( at 85mph).

Blimey - and some Sorento owners complain about averages of 27 - 30+ solo and 22 - 25 towing!!

I'm running a Mitsubishi Pajero LWB 2.8 tdi automatic with my current caravan. Fuel consumption is 29-30 mpg running solo but between 18 - 20 mpg towing. Pajero is only used for towing and running around at destination. Have thought about the 3.2 but understand the fuel consumption is worse than I am getting at the moment. Lovely cars tho'.

Currently driving/towing with 2005/55 SWB 3.2DiD Auto Warrior, with Ralliart power upgrade Having covered 18k, and just losening up nicely.

Regular mpg 25 around town local stuff, down to 19-20mpg towing, can get up to 26-27 mpg on long solo runs, if careful with the gas pedal. Generally I found the old LWBases a bit gutless and wobbly.

I have driven the new LWB on a Mitsubishi On/Offroad day, and can say they are a lot better refinement/ interior wise, if expensive, however cannot speak of their 'economy'. Also the new shape is a lot less wobbly ride/suspension wise.

I can say that in 2WD (RWD) they can be quite tail happy, however put them in 4WD and it solves this, but the mpg takes a significant hit.

I had 3x Disco3's in 12 months before the Shogun, all of which were nice cars (infinitely better in every way than even the 'new' shogun...when they worked...or hadn't broken down). I would not have moved to the Shogun as I feel it was a retrograde step, if it wasn't for the fact Land Rover could not produce one that worked for me in a reliable manner.

Hi,

We have the 55 plate LWB diesel Elegance. Great tow car, rock solid, will pull anything, never had a problem with it.

£90+ to fill the tank, never bothered to check the fuel consumption but get about 450 miles to a tank solo.

Took out the 3rd row of seats and use the under floor area for storage. Only issue I have is that it's so tall I can't get the bikes up on the roof bars.

Cheers

Steve

That's about 22 - 25 mpg

Blimey you must have a light right foot :blink:

Either that or the Ralliart kit on mine is killing the economy. ?Is yours an Auto or manual?

Sorry for the delay in answering, I have a manual box. I have checked mpg on several occasions (full tank -top-up and litres used -towing and solo) and the figures are as I quoted.

Extra ECU and piggy-back wiring loom from what I can remember.

Quite a bit of faffing running the loom, & all in I think Mitsubishi dealers charge £8-900 (inc. 2yr guarantee).

Mine was already fitted as I bought it 12months old as an ex-demo ;)

Makes quite a nice difference though!
