    Just curious..... What kind of gas mileage does an HJ47 get? I figured the diesel would make it relatively high.

    I saw one for sale and it said it carries 11 people :cool:.

    If I had the money, that is probably what I would buy.

    Low 20s? Is it the H or 2H motor? Low 20s is typical for the H series I believe, and that's with a tuned engine with fresh injectors etc.

    YMMV

    especially if it has 11 people in it

    Well, I've gotten 25 mpg on long freeway stretches. A little less when wheeling;)

    The injectors are key--if they need a rebuild, the mileage in a diesel will tank fast. Well, it will still beat out a 2F hands down, but that's not too hard now is it?

    I got no info on mileage but thought this might be of interest. Came across it last night - not sure how I ended up surfing the diesel section (dirty, smelly things!:flipoff2: ):

    Just some info on Cruiser engine specs, might help you with which engine if you decide on going to the dark (& smelly) side!
