MPG of a 2.4 Petrol and a Pop Top Roof Installer?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I'm new here so please go easy on me.

 

Me and my partner are in the process of finding our first Alphard. We are after a 2.4 Litre Petrol which we will get converted by Campervans4FunUK up in Macclesfield as they are local to us in Manchester.

 

I have a few questions that I would greatly appreciate any insight on.

 

  1. What's the real world MPG of a 2.4 once converted with a full side conversion and pop-top. I have read 25-30 is realistic?
  2. Can anyone recommend an installer of a pop top roof so we can sleep upstairs?

 

Any help is greatly apprecaited.

 

Cheers
Mark

Hi Mark,

 

1. Correct, you will get something around 25. Conversion and the roof doesn't add that much weight to be fair (as far as kitchen units are made from plywood).

2. Have a look on Drivelodge website and their recommended installers.

Thanks for your reply. So has it that I have just contacted them but was after a recommendation from someone who has one.

 

Is that 25 on a good day or average of combined town/motorway sorry?

25 is sort of the average for a 2.4, motorway is about 30 and town can be about 20

I get almost 15 daily driving mine :0 i do have a 3L though

Mine was fitted by Northstar Conversions and 25 is average combined for my 2.4

Thanks everyone.

 

We've found a couple of quality 2.4 Alphards that are recently imported, we've also found a Drive Lodge fitter near to Manchester and a local conversion company that can all do it in Feb 2022, so I think we're going to bite the bullet.

 

Can anyone else recommend what to look out for on a 2.4 2005/2006 when checking them out at dealers?
