76 chevy diesel gets around 30 mpg highway speeds
I was looking for a high gas mileage pickup so I asked General Motors to
build me a Chevy S-10 with a V-6 diesel engine, with overdrive transmission
and a high gear ratio rear end. They said sorry we can't do that... So I
did it myself. I restored a Chevy C-10 that had a 350 ci engine and
installed a 6.2 diesel engine, 700r4 overdrive transmission, and 2.73 rear
gear. My project truck gets around 30 mpg yet it will cruise on the
highway 75-80 effortlessly. Why spend 30 thousand for a new truck that
gets 15 - 19 mpg.
HTZ T-150KM with Scania DS14 V8-diesel starting -4 degrees.
I installed Scania engine in Harkov T-150K last winter because the old
engine was leaking coolant to engine oil. There's self made adaptor plate
between engine and transmission case. Scania DS14 engine was bought from
junk yard. I made it only minor repairs to the engine like replaced one
broken cylinder liner with new one and installed new nozzles.
1994 Chev S10 gas to diesel conversion
My converted S10 gas to diesel truck. It was a 4.3 vortec V6 gas engine
with an automatic transmission, I removed them both and installed the Isuzu
C223 4 cylinder diesel, with a Borg Warner T5 5 speed, which came with the
engine. Conversion was fairly straight-forward, not a lot of fabrication
required to make things work.
It's quite underpowered, it's slow accelerating, though once up to speed
it's not so bad. Fuel mileage is amazing for a truck. I haven't run the
tank to near empty, but have seen 600kms at 1/2 tank left, so I think I
should get 1000kms from the tank (just the stock tank - 13 imp gal I
believe). I haven't owned a vehicle yet where 1/2 tank was exactly half of
the distance you can travel on a tankful.
It's different. Most guys who modify their drive trains put in bigger
engines, typically V8's, however I went for something different, unique,
and cheap to drive. I can still haul all an S10 can (or more), and have
hauled my trailer with a ton of steel, for a total weight of almost 7100
lbs. I just didn't haul it quickly.
I hope you enjoy the vid.
For the first time, I tried to see how far I could get on a tank of fuel
(usually I fill it weekly). The fuel gauge was in the red, though I didn't
run out, it was at 1009kms when I filled it.
