Sorry, but can't really see any part numbers without removing things.

Try giving them an email....

The plan is to do one up as a simple camper with rock and roll bed, maybe with a small lift and bigger tyres. I know I'll sacrifice off road ability etc with the D5 but my main concern is parts and and the lack of UK based info out there.


Hi I'm planning on a similar project but was hoping to fit an elevating roof... Anybody know if there's a decent one available for the D5?

without appearing to hijack the thread, I'm also interested in any other D5 owners out there.  I had a L400 for 10 years but finally got rid when the maintenance became increasingly more frequent and my time was limited.  I replaced it with an LC3 landcruiser which has turned out to be a rust bucket (concealed with waxoil/underseal by the previous owners) for the last 2 years but I desperately miss the versatility and space the Delica offered and so have been drawn back to the forum.


My main concern is fuel economy.  I'm reading the diesel D5 is getting around 35mpg (average combined) and the petrol 23mpg.  Can anyone confirm these numbers?


I've missed this forum

Cheers gents

Bob

Afternoon - Just had a D5 imported from Japan, all sorted and registered. I don't think there are many of us out there just yet, but Mitsubishi are running one out of their head office in Cirencester. They often fight about who gets to use it !

Picked up our D5 import from Aberdeenshire. Not a L400 but totally delighted with it. Also wondering if there are any D5 owners using the forum.

Can you tell me who you used to import.  I've been looking at the car from japan website but it looks like it is just a central website managing numerous different import agents.

Great replacement for our old 4wd diesel Jasper that after three replacement engine heads we had to give up on.
Hardly used 4wd anyway

Hi, where in Glasgow are you? I am interested in getting a Delica D5 too.
Have you had any issues servicing it?

Hi everyone,
I have recently imported a D4, 4wd from Japan. Has anyone experienced the fuel consumption for this car? The engine is 2.4L and the car has used 55L petrol for 300 kilometres. Does it sound alright?
Thanks

Hi, Mozak, and welcome. Are you sure you've got those figures right? It translates to around 17mpg, or similar to my dad's old 1972, 3.5 V8 Mk1 Range Rover. My 1991 diesel L300 Delica returns around 8 or 9 Km/L (approx 28mpg) on a top gear run, cruising around 60mph.

Hi Andy Man,
Thanks for your reply. Yes I am sure. My Delica D5 is 2.4L petrol. I had about 55l petrol and drove the car only in London for about 300 kilometres. The wired thing is I can smell exhaust fume inside the car. I donít where to take the car to do a diagnostic test.

If so, that works out around 18.3L per 100Km or 5.46 Km per Litre.

I.E. 3.38 miles per Litre (15mpg). †Shocked
