My D4D 3.0 Hilux defo more powerfull than (even before I chipped it) the 1kzte Colorado I had, both auto. The Hilux also has a steinbauer chip now, so even better for power.
But mpg is the same pretty much same in both about 22-25mpg. Both modified with winch, lift, underbody skid plates etc.
Yuk - was that the cabin pollen filter ?
When I took my Hilux in for a sevice once the mechanics found a mouse next above that filter, loads of dead grass and twigs , the mouse wasn’t there fortunately
I had one mining out our compost bin, put 3 rat traps baited with peanut butter in it, and 3 in polytunnel. Completely ignored for a week.... added a lump of chocolate to each trap And caught one 2 days later.
No more digging a few weeks on, so hopefully just the one, but that’s rare they are...
