Update on Furteel Ghonga 2.0

FG2.0 has now completed almost 26,000 kms in about 7 months. I have driven primarily on highways across the country from Mumbai with just one trip to the mountains (Tosh / Kasol / Jibhi) so far.

There is nothing much to report other than it has been chugging miles happily without breaking a sweat.

  • Very mild off-roading done so far
  • DAC, Rear diff lock and low range work as expected
  • No DPF issues so far
  • Three services done at 1k, 10k and 20k of which oil change was done in the last two.
  • Total bill amount less than 8k for oil change service
  • Wheel alignment and balancing done 4 times along with tyre rotation
  • Average FE has been around ~11 kmpl overall thanks to the addictive sport mode
  • Will activate manual DPF regen mode during next service primarily for use in the high altitude areas

Sharing some pics. Enjoy!
