Also, when I turn the AC on high the air...

Just inquiring if anyone has done a LED headlight upgrade on the PX ranger. If so, did the CANBUS specific ones do the trick. As we know, these damn things are that sensitive to LED's.

Just wanted to go over an issue I have with my Ranger. It is a 2009 Diesel Auto 4x4 - completely standard at the moment. I noticed that the fuel range was very poor around 370-390kms. I ran fuel tests and got the following. First tank filled a total 52litres Vortex and got 371km's -...
