Hey guys, been looking at the nitro for a while now
Parents almost brought one they first came out, but went for something different, but I have continued to like them since.
Just want to know from the UK owners whats better, the petrol or diesel engines, I'll be looking at getting one with around 80-90k miles.
Currently own a blazer which does 7mpg so either way the fuel won't bother me to much.
Just want your opinions thanks

Chris

Petrol converted to LPG gives me roughly 40mpg costs of running equivalence. Slight loss of power but who cares the 3.7 v6 lump is plenty good enough for me. I’m on 167,000 miles now and no desire to get rid…the two of us are joined at the hip for life 😂.

do your homework, and make sure you thoroughly check the part time 4wd system, many don’t understand it and wreck it. The is no limited slip diffs on this!!!

oh and the DVLA will love you whether you go petrol or diesel at over £500 road tax each year. Mind you you’re used to that with your Blazer 😳
