Hey metro,
Thanks for the welcome and info.

That is some impressive numbers from "Dave" considering his truck weighs close to 4 tons!

Guess I should raise my goal for the mileage increase.

I know it can be done because I did another Suburban diesel conversion using a Cummins 4BT.

Best MPG achieved from the 4BT was 26 highway and 20-21 city which isn't bad.

I decided to do a gm diesel because they bolt right in and their inexpensive. Just have to know how to take care of them and they will take care of you


I would like to do a yanmar 3 cyl. diesel conversion to a metro, I think 70 mpg would be achievable.

99' Suburban K1500
6.5 diesel non turbo/4l80e conversion
Out with the gas 350!
