    Anyone in the community who is familiar with the Gas consumption of a Hyundai Tucson 2007 GAS variant as compared to the CRDi?
    A seller is of course selling a Gas variant and just like to hear from others regarding their experience or at least have seen regarding the 2L gas engine.
    I do a lot of City driving and not sure if this can reach to 8km/L (city) and 12km/L (hiway)
    Thanks in advance.

    I have the 2009 Tucson gas 2.0L. I use up 7 km/L at best, city driving. Maybe 10 on expressways.

    What is the worst case consumption sir? Does it go down to 5km/L especially with EDSA?

    Not that low naman. 6k/L would be worst case.

    You'd have to factor in the expenses of pms in a diesel engine.

    not sure about the price since I'm just looking at the diesel variant but if it is 200k or more, depends on how long you plan on using it.
    just think that 200k for maybe 3 years worth of gasoline is a lot especially if you are just going around the city.
    also as Kiko said, the PMS of a diesel engine is different from a gasoline powered engine. Gasoline engines are easier to maintain.

    BTW, if you are looking to get a petrol engined CUV, try looking at the Mazda CX5 Maxx. I'd get that rather than the gas variant tucson

    I agree. Gasoline engines are easier to maintain over diesel. After about 10 years, diesel engines will begin to have rough idle and be down on power. This will require you to have diesel calibration. Depending on what is needed to be replaced in the fuel system, this will cost about 20k-40k(I think).
