Fresh campaign from LPG industry

Posted by admin | 5 September 2013

It just makes sense with the abundant supply of LPG in Australia that the government should adopt new policies that will benefit road users converting their vehicles to the LPG! Savings are obvious with LPG being almost 1/2 the price and lets not forget the emissions benefits by using LPG instead of unleaded or diesel fuels.

Are you planning your trip of a lifetime in the majestic outback of Australia.  Make sure you look at all your options for what will get your vehicle in tip top shape before you leave.  LPG could be the answer for you
 
What Keep River National Park lacks in size, it sure makes up for in natural beauty
 
 
When travelling west along Highway One towards the Western Australian border, any uncooked fruit and vegetables have to be surrendered to the border quarantine check point before entering WA. This was a good excuse for us to point the GU north just 3km short of the border and enter the Keep River National Park.

We didn’t know a lot about Keep River National Park or what was on offer within its boundaries, so we were going in with our eyes wide open.

Dalhousie Springs is an amazing place situated just south of Mount Dare on a terrible road that will shake the bolts off even the best-kept 4WD! The reward of soaking in 40°C spring water at the end of the drive is amazing and well worth the effort put into getting there!

Inflation & It’s elements

Posted by admin | 21 August 2012

Inflation impacts fuel prices and asw you may have noticed they are rising again.  Look at LPG on your vehicle and avoid paying top dollar!!!
 
In economics, the word inflation refers to general rise in prices, measured against a standard level of purchasing power. Previously, the term was used to refer to an increase in the money supply, and now referred to as expansionary monetary policy pr monetary inflation. Inflation is measured by comparing two sets of goods at two points in time, and computing the increase in cost not reflected by an increase in quality.

Wholesale Price Index (WPI)
Declared on a monthly basis, the index is calculated on the average rate of change in the wholesale market. The WPI contains 980 commodities, with a base year of 2004-05. The WPI basket comprise manufactured products (65%), primary articles (20%) and fuel & power (15%). Food articles are a part of primary articles, constituting 14% of the overall WPI. Processed foods, part of manufactured products, account for 11% of the WPI.

Commodity Price Index (CPI)
The CPI is declared on a monthly basis. It is a statistical time series value based on the weighted average rate of change in the prices of a set of goods and services purchased by the consumer. The CPI is more comprehensive, catching the inflation value from the end-consumer perspective rather than from a wholesale one.

In India,  inflation is measured by movement of the WPI, which is more closely followed than the CPI.

Think a Disco 2 can’t be a tough tourer? Think again

 
Land Rovers cop a fair bit of flak, but their owners are loyal to the core. Even then it takes a special type of 4WDer to take on a Discovery 2. Launched in 1998, the D2 was a serious innovator in the 4WD market, introducing Traction Control and Hill Descent Control to full-size fourbies.

The Surf is a great 4WD and goes fabulously when fitted with LPG.  If you need extra power or want to save on fuel bills then a conversion is the way to go!!

We love hearing about the new 4WDs when they hit the market like the LandCruiser GX and the Special Edition Wrangler Mountain Edition. More than anything it gives us an idea about what the budget tourers will be like when we get our hands on them in a few years.

Holden Chooses Vapour over Liquid

Posted by jessica | 15 March 2012

 

Holden Chooses Vapour LPG System over Liquid

Read to find out why they believe the vapour system will suit motorists better

 

LPG injection system

At the very beginning of the LPG project, Holden engineers evaluated liquid and vapour-injection LPG systems. After preliminary research and building a proof of concept liquid injection prototype vehicle, it quickly became apparent that vapour injection was the only solution to achieving the program’s goals.

“Vapour injection provides lower fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions compared to liquid, while vapour also uses fuel more efficiently with fewer pumping and parasitic losses,” said Mr McMurray.

“Vapour systems are less mechanically demanding and therefore better suited to the varying grades of LPG fuel found across Australia.

“Vapour is also best suited to the Australian climate, with more consistent start-up in hot climatic conditions.”

 

New petrol V8 for the LandCruiser

We have converted so many of the v8 Landcruiser’s and will continue to do so as they work so well with LPG.  If you are looking at saving money with your Landcruiser contact us and we can let you know how much!!
 
 

Toyota has injected a new lease of life into its new petrol V8 engine for future GXL, VX and Sahara models.

The biggest change in the engine is its reduction in capacity from 4.7L to 4.6L and yet it still boasts an increase in power and torque. Power has increased by 12.9% to 228 kW and torque by 7.1% to 439Nm, that’s despite a 53cm3 reduction in engine capacity.

Why Aussie 4WDers have the Best of It

Posted by admin | 14 March 2012

This is so true.  Australians have such a diverse and beautiful landscape to explore and it would have to be the envy of any country!! 
If you are looking at discovering this for yourself look at getting a gas conversion before you set out for increased power, economy and overall drivability.  You won’t be disappointed!!
 

Unless you haven’t realised yet, Australia provides one of the most amazing landscapes in the world for 4WDing, and on top of that we’re blessed with the right tools to get the job done.

What are we talking about?

Our 4WDs – the idea that you can take your modified 4WD up some of the most difficult terrain this country has to offer, and then head into the shop on the way home to pick up a few snags and drinks, is a foreign concept to most in other countries.

Converting your vehicle to LPG – Still Economical

Posted by jessica | 13 March 2012

With the increase in LPG prices many people are wondering if it is still worthwhile to convert?  Well here is your answer supplied by leading motoring associations.  Contact us & let us tell you how much you could be saving!!

LPG

IS converting your vehicle to LPG still an
economically viable option?

Advertiser’s MICHAEL MILNES reports.

 

MOTORISTS who thought LPG was the saviour to the ever-climbing price of petrol must now be wondering if their conversion was the right move.

 Industry experts say LPG converts have been hit with a “triple whammy”, with the price of gas surging more than 40 per cent in the past five months.

Since August 2006, the Federal Government has paid motorists a $2000 rebate for installing an LPG system on their cars or $1000 for buying a new car that ran on LPG.

Unlike other fuels, LPG had no excise or taxes on it so its price remained fairly stable for years. But that all changed in December last year when the Federal Government introduced a 2.5c-a-litre excise on LPG.

Furthermore, gas-using motorists can expect to pay 20 per cent more than today’s prices by the time the full 12.5c excise plus GST is in place by 2015.

In the past week, LPG prices in Adelaide have been as high as 89.9c – a far cry from an average price of only 59.7c a litre in November last year.

The price of LPG is set by the Saudis on the first business day of the month and remains at that price for the rest of the month.

LPG Australia chief executive Michael Carmody says the excise is terrible for motorists.

“The crazy thing about this is on one hand you have got a government who just spent the last four to five years providing rebates and encouraging people to get their vehicles converted across to LPG and in the next breath they are applying a tax to the product, ” Mr Carmody says.

“LPG is seen as one of the absolute key transition (less polluting and more sustainable) fuels within Australia. We have got abundant supplies in terms of energy security … and it pumps out 15 per cent less pollution out of the exhaust. We should be encouraging everyone to get on to it.”

Mr Carmody says harsh winter weather in the northern hemisphere is driving up the demand, and price, for LPG along with the introduction of the excise.

“In addition to that over the last couple of months, you have had Woolworths and Coles conducting a price war on their petrol, diesel and LPG products where we have seen anything up to 10c a litre discounting at the bowser,” Mr Carmody says.

“What has happened is all of a sudden the price war has stopped, we have been hit by the Saudi contract price rise – and now the Government’s excise price with GST is on top of that, the poor old consumer has been hit with an absolute triple whammy.”

Motorists can expect the high prices to stay until the end of this month and into April when the demand in the northern hemisphere drops as they move into their spring.

Mr Carmody does warn, however, there could be similar volatility with LPG prices in 2013.

“I know it’s tough for our LPG consumers who look at the price board and see the price going up, but the autogas consumer is getting a great deal out there.”

The $2000 rebate for converting vehicles to LPG will be dropped to $1250 until June 30 this year before dropping to $1000 until it ends on June 30, 2014. A rebate of $2000 will still be paid until June 30, 2014, on new vehicles if LPG is fitted before its first registration.

In the past, gas conversions on cars would mean a loss of power and reduced fuel economy by up to 30 per cent. But that has all changed, SA Auto Gas owner Andy Sutton says.

“LPG actually has an octane rating of 103, higher than any petrol,” he says.

“The gas systems we use these days are identical in operation to the petrol injection systems, driveability and economy is better (than the old gas systems) … people are not aware that you can buy a system that drives identical to petrol,” he says.

“On gas-injected LPG vehicles, you actually gain around about 5 per cent power. Economy within 10 per cent of petrol injection is realistic. It depends on how you drive it.

“You are getting more bang for your buck. You get the same result out of 80c worth of LPG as you get out of $1.50 worth of petrol.”

Mr Sutton says when the $2000 rebate kicked in, he was doing two to three gas installations a day but now that the government rebate has dropped, they are down to about four a month.

“It’s dropped off incredibly,” he says. “It’s lucky our business doesn’t rely on LPG only. If it did, we would be like a lot of the small gas guys and shut the doors.”

Mr Sutton estimates about a third of gas-conversion companies that were around at the rebate’s peak have closed.

With the average cost of an LPG installation at $4000 to $4500, less the $1250 rebate, he says a motorists using 100 litres of gas a week will have the system paid for in about a year. “It’s a no-brainer,” Mr Sutton says.

RAA senior analyst Chris West says motorists who have converted to LPG are still making savings.

He says ongoing tensions in the Middle East and the demand for energy in Asia – especially for LPG in Japan because of the Fukushima incident – are continuing to push the prices for all energy commodities higher.

“The Australian dollar strengthened throughout February and reduced the full impact of the increase, but motorists will still be hit with high pump prices,” he says.

In January 1991, the Federal Government deregulated the wholesale price of LPG. As an internationally traded commodity it is influenced by international prices and factors such as the the Australian dollar.

Australian LPG producers also trade it at international prices in metric tonnes and US dollars.

LPG is a clean, green environmentally friendly alternative to other fossil fuels as it emits far fewer pollutants.

Iran, Oil and Strait of Hormuz

Get ready for the price of petrol & diesel to skyrocket.  If this happens you could be looking at paying in excess of $3.00 a litre.  This is bound to hurt the average person quite significantly so start looking at your options and think about gas for your car!!!

It is significant for the simple reason that about 17m barrels of oil produced in the Middle East is transported through the Strait. Right now, the strait is in dire […]

The 2011 ST-X had a 2.5L 4-clyinder that produced 450Nm torque and 140kW of power. The new 2012 Navara ST-X will be decked out with a brand-new 3.0L V6 turbo diesel that will produce 550Nm of torque and 170kW of power. The 2012 ST-x also features a seven-speed automatic transmission and a few exterior enhancements such as fog lights and rear privacy glass.

The new common-rail diesel now produces 21% more power and 22% more torque.

Holden Chooses LPG Vapour Injection System

Posted by jessica | 29 February 2012

Holden has made their choice of LPG System and have surprised quite a few by selecting the vapour system over the liquid injection.  After trials and reviews they determined that the vapour injection system was better for their customers.  We mainly deal with the vapour injection systems and are pleased that Holden concurs with the research available to what is the better system.

Unleaded Fuel Set to Rise

Posted by admin | 21 February 2012

Are your fuel bills climbing? 
Would you prefer to keep your hard earnedmoney in your pocket rather than put it into the bowser?
Well you could save 50% or more of your current fuel bill by converting to an LPG system.  Contact us today to find out more!!
 

4WDers can expect a price hike in unleaded fuel over the next fortnight due to a rise in prices in the overseas markets.

Last week the average fuel price around the country was 142.4/L. However, an increase of $5 per barrel in the price of Singapore’s exported unleaded will mean the prices around the country will likely increase between 3 – 5c/L, according to the Australian Institute of Petroleum.

According to the latest numbers from the Bureau of Statistics, in November 2011 alone, Australia imported 67% of unleaded and 40% of all diesel fuel from Singapore.

The Complete Package

Posted by admin | 21 February 2012

There are so many added extras that people would like to fit to their 4WD.  Maybe you should look into fitting an LPG conversion to either your petrol or diesel vehicle.  A great modification that will result in added power & torque as well as fuel savings. 
 
The Toyota Prado is seen by a lot of 4WDers as the ‘mum’s taxi’ of the 4WD world. Sure, there are more getting round the suburbs as a family bus, but there are just as many, if not more, out there that are very capable 4WDs.

The 120 Prado would have to be rated as one of the best Prados made, as they are a great family wagon and also double as a great off-road vehicle. With a bit of barwork to keep the shiny panels intact and a locker in one or both ends, you get a 4WD that will keep up with the best of them.

SMALL BUSINESS URGED TO PLAN FOR TAX CUTS AND $6500 ASSET DEPRECIATION

Minister for Small Business Mark Arbib today reminded small businesses about the important changes being introduced to help them improve cash flow and reduce red tape.

 A recent survey commissioned by Telstra Business and the Council of Small Business of Australia (COSBOA) revealed many businesses weren’t aware of the Federal Governments tax cuts.

 Senator Arbib said the Government was delivering important changes this year which will help small businesses by allowing them to plan their capital purchases and maximise cash flow.

 “From 1 July this year we are changing the asset write off provisions for all small businesses and the changing depreciation arrangements for other assets – saving time, money and paperwork,” Senator Arbib said.

 “This means small businesses will be able to immediately write off all new assets valued under $6,500.

  “If a small business buys a computer for $3000, they can immediately write off the cost of the computer. This means the business can claim a deduction for $3000 in the first year in its tax return, as opposed to $450 in the first year under the current arrangements.

 “In addition they will be able to write off up to $5,000 for new motor vehicles, meaning increased cash flow.

 “A tradesman on a 30 per cent marginal tax rate buying a new $33,960 ute would receive an extra benefit of $1,275 in the year they purchased it. The rest of the purchase value can be transferred into the general small business depreciation pool, which will be depreciated at 15 per cent in the first year and 30 per cent in later years.”

 Senator Arbib said the government understood how hard small business owners worked and often don’t have the time to read the papers or visit government websites to find out this important information.

 “In my discussions with small business owners a common concern is the flow of information,” Senator Arbib said. 

 “I have made it a priority to improve this and will be working closely with peak industry bodies to ensure this information is passed on to small business owners in the most efficient way possible.”

 Senator Arbib said the community must not forget that small business owners are people who put all their effort into running their business. They deserve strong support.

 “The Government is committed to supporting Australian small businesses and will continue to work closely with the sector to ensure further growth,” Senator Arbib said.

What’s the Line?

Posted by admin | 31 January 2012

Group touring is a great way to ensure your safety and make a trip that much more enjoyable.  Impress your 4WD buddies by having a diesel/gas system fitted and power past them while saving money on fuel as well. 
 
We let you in on the tricks of reading the terrain so that you can outdrive your mates every time!
 
 
We all know that 4WDing with a group is not only a smart and safe way to get out and see the bush, it’s also a heck of a lot of fun! But have you ever noticed that once the terrain starts to get a little tricky, there always seems to be one or two in the group that just do it all easily?

The Untouched Coast

Posted by admin | 31 January 2012

Beautiful country, perfect for a 4WD holiday.  Make sure that your vehicle will have the power & torque to reach all of these special spots in Australia.  Don’t miss out, get your 4WD converted and notice the difference!! 
 
Our Tasmanian adventure begins with very wet sand, and one of the best stretches of untamed rugged coastline you will ever see
 
 
When you work for 4WD Action, what do you do when you get your annual leave approved? Well, go on a 4WD adventure of course. The idea to head for the untamed west coast of Tasmania was born when halfway through February, our plans for an early Simpson crossing over April were looking bleak. With a heap of rain falling out west, we decided to weigh up the cost of some other iconic Aussie destinations.

After deciding against the Cape due to time constraints and wanting to travel further than the VIC High Country, the idea of Tassie was raised.

Fuel Price Set to Hit $2.00/Litre

Posted by admin | 27 January 2012

This is a real concern and will undoubtedly be the future that we will all have to face.  Act before the prices rise and start saving money instead of feeding it into the bowser.  LPG is currently about half the price of petrol and once the rise hits that difference will be even more.  Don’t wait any longer make sure that you don’t keep paying more than you need!!! 

If you think current fuel prices are bad, what will happen to your weekender budget if fuel hits $2.00/litre?

As you’ll all know, the price of fuel in Australia is determined by what happens beyond our shores.

If this sounds like you and you love the feeling of getting out on the open road we can help improve your vehicle.  Make sure that your car is up to scratch and that you are getting the most out of it. 

Most people can pin-point the moment they first got into 4WDing. Whether it was inheriting a busted 4WD from your parents, or thrashing a beaten sedan down a muddy track and not being able to make the distance.

We asked some of the guys around the office, who have made 4WDing their life, where did it all start?

Blokes Hit the Tracks for Breast Cancer

Posted by admin | 27 January 2012

What a great way to support a cause.  Adventure in the Australian outback to raise funds for an important issue that affects thousands every year.  Well done boys!! 

 

Ten years ago, four blokes set off in a HJ47 Troopy LandCruiser to tour Australia and raise funds for the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation breast cancer research fund.

In 2001, Nick, Andrew, Lachy and John travelled 35,000km in nine months to help out a mate in need.

The event came around as Nick’s mother contracted breast cancer and the 22-year-olds wanted to do whatever they could. The four blokes then decided to rally behind their mate and set off on an epic 4WD adventure in an attempt to help raise funds.

4WD Wagon vs Utes

Posted by admin | 11 January 2012

Whether you prefer the Ute or Wagon there is no doubts that either will be improved by fitting a LPG system.  With better driveability, fuel savings, more power this would be the best option for your vehicle 
 

This is an age-old debate: how does a 4WD wagon stack up against a 4WD ute?

When it comes to buying a budget 4WD, you need to consider a few things, touring vs hardcore 4WDing, petrol vs diesel, but more specifically wagon vs ute. Here at the 4WD Action office, we own a combination of the two, so arguments for and against come thick and fast.

Utes

Pros
• Utes obviously don’t carry as much weight when empty. Less glass and body panels.

New Suzuki XA Promises to Dominate Off-Road

Posted by admin | 11 January 2012

Looking forward to seeing one of these in action as they are now competing with the likes of the Landcruiser & Patrol which have always been the most popular 4WD.  Big words from Suzuki but only time will tell

Suzuki has announced its new 4WD at the New Delhi Auto Show. The Suzuki XA will most likely replace the Jimny down the track.

When Suzuki promised it would have more off-road capabilities than its own Jimny and Vitara, you can bet we paid attention.

So far the XA is only a concept 4WD, but it sits 4m long with a wheelbase of 2.5m, which is conveniently placed between the Jimny (3.6m long with a 2.2m wheelbase) and the Grand Vitara (4.5m long with a 2.6m wheelbase).

Mt Brown and Mt Remarkable Reopen

This is a wonderful place to visit and great news for those who were looking at taking a holiday and exploring this region.  We could make your driving experience much better with one of our Diesel/Gas Systems with extra power & torque, less emissions, longer fuel tank range and much more!!

The Department of Environment and Resources has reopened both Mt Remarkable and Mt Brown this morning (9th January).

The closure of these parks on Friday came in response to a large fire burning in the Flinders Ranges in central South Australia. The fire burnt out 7800ha between Woolundunga and Willington.

The northerly winds swept the fire south, but was able to be contained before too much damage occurred. Fire-fighters enforced secure control lines and were able to bring the blaze under control.

North-West Wandering

Posted by admin | 11 January 2012

You would need a powerful car to get through this kind of terrain.  If you are wanting to live the dream and explore the vast outback of Australia but aren’t sure if your vehicle has the power & torque required then call us and learn how you could improve that by up to 25% and make your 4 wheeler a touring dream!!

A month spent discovering the north-west of WA was just a dream, until we put it into reality!

 
 
 
In June 2009, we had just returned home from a three-week trip travelling around Thailand. It was then that we had decided our next holiday would be an Australian holiday ‘in our own backyard’. We had decided to put our money back into Australia’s economy and experience what the north-west had to offer.

We began basing the trip around the Gibb River Road, as it was something we had been dreaming about for a long time. After doing our research, we had agreed the best time to go would be around July to August.

Motorists hit with Petrol Price Rises

Posted by jessica | 11 January 2012

As reported by the Herald Sun petrol prices continue to rise and this could really start to hurt families.  Contact us to see if your vehicle can be converted to LPG and combat the rising prices today!!!

“COMMUTERS have woken to a sting at the petrol pumps after prices hit up to $1.51 per litre overnight.

Some stations are still selling petrol at $1.29 per litre, while the average price was $1.47 per litre, the RACV’s petrol watch site shows.

Prices began the spike yesterday after hovering around $1.34 per litre for most of last week.”

1 in 4 Aussies is Buying a 4WD

Posted by admin | 11 January 2012

AIf you are also looking at buying a 4WD as your next vehicle remember that whether it is a diesel or petrol vehicle it can be fitted with gas and benefit you with better economy, more power & torque, longer fuel range & environmentally it will reduce harmful emissions

There is no denying that Aussies love their 4WDs, and we have the figures to prove it!

Every month the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries releases figures from vehicle sales across Australia. Last month there were 82,459 total vehicles sold. Of this, 22,367 were 4WDs and SUVs.

This means almost one in every four Aussies is buying a 4WD.

Here are some more interesting facts and figures:
• 1.5% increase in 4WDs and SUVs between 2010 and 2011.
• We bought 3812 more 4WDs and SUVs last month then we did in December 2010.

Roothy’s News – Merry Christmas

Posted by admin | 20 December 2011

Christmas in the great Australian outback sounds like a great idea to us as well.  Wishing you all a Happy & Safe Christmas.  Enjoy your holidays!!!

Strooth! Only a week to go and the fat guy in the red suit will be testing the tin roofs again. I love Christmas in Australia.

The Handbrake was on the phone to her rellies in Wales last night – there goes another hundred bucks that could have been spent on fuel – and they’re all whingeing about the ice on the roads and the cars buried in snow.

Meanwhile here in good old Aussie, we’re juggling between the beach and the bush, enjoying the best country the world has to offer.

LPG Tax Now in Effect

Posted by admin | 20 December 2011

We can help you to figure out your fuel savings if you switch to gas.  Contact us today and we can also let you know the other benefits of having an autogas vehicle!!!
 

Why do people convert to LPG? Easy, to save money.

LPG gas is largely made up of propane and butane. This mixture is far less potent than petrol. Therefore you’ll find yourself using up a larger amount of it when you’re out on the tracks.

So where does the cost saving come in? The large amount of fuel you burn is usually offset by the lower price of gas per litre. This is usually around 57 cents/litre (vary depending on location), so this would usually set you back a little over $50 every time you fill up a 90L tank.

Nissan Creates Local Jobs

Posted by admin | 16 December 2011

 
More jobs for Australians is always good news and the fact that another major car manufacturer is basing part of their operation locally shows that they have faith with the state of the vehicle industry in Oz.
 

Nissan has made the decision to create a local manufacturing facility for its tow bars, sport bars and nudge bars in Australia.

Based in Dandenong VIC, the new facility will create 20 new full-time jobs at the Nissan Casting Plant. Previously, Nissan used a local supplier for all castings, which then sent jobs overseas to Asia.

The casting plant will involve high- and low-pressure die casting and is forecast to produce around two million alloy castings over the following year. The Aussie plant will export most of its tow bar castings to Japan, Thailand, Mexico and the US.

Petrol vs Diesel Debate

Posted by admin | 16 December 2011

Whether you prefer a petrol or diesel vehicle you should look at improving performance & fuel economy with a LPG installation.  We can convert both types so look into this and you will not be disappointed!!
 

For those 4WDers out there with a diesel, you’ll know all too well the costs associated with keeping your truck in fighting condition on the tracks.

If you pick up 4WD Action issue 174, on page 151 we’ve given you the inside spread into the running costs of a diesel compared to a petrol. To some, this is a very black and white matter, but definitely one that needs to be brought to the table.

We compared the 1HD-FT turbo-diesel and 1FZ-FE petrol engines, and nutted out exactly how much it’s going to cost you.

How much does your 4WD cost you?

Going the Distance

Posted by admin | 14 December 2011

Write Comment Here
Love a long day touring the countryside? These tips will make it even better
Adventure 4WDing is the best way to see Australia and experience the different terrains this country has to offer.  To do this though you need a tough vehicle with planty of power & torque.  Maybe you need to look at improving this before setting out on your next trip.  If so contact us about our kits.
 
 
 
 

From Sydney it is a touch over 750km and about nine hours solid driving to Bourke. From Brisbane you are looking at more than 20 hours behind the wheel and over 1700km just to get to Cairns. Perth is the most isolated city in the world, and even at 130km/h through the Territory, it will take you more than 12 hours (and that is 130km/h, the whole way, no stopping or even slowing) to see Uluru.

If you want to see the best parts of Australia, you have to be prepared to put in the big kays and tackle some long drives. For many of us, though, this is part of the adventure we live for.

4WDs and the Environment

Posted by admin | 13 December 2011

 
Do you want your 4WD to have less impact with emissions.  A gas system for your petrol or diesel could be the solution.  Cleaner burning so emission levels are significantly reduced.  Don’t fret about what your 4WD is doing to the Environment, invest in the future and in a gas system.
 

When will the opposition to 4WDers end?

4WDing is a popular Aussie past time. But these days, 4WDers are struggling to keep their head above water when it comes to improving their image in the eyes of the media.

The ABC, in almost a yearly practice, investigates and reports the damage 4WDers have on the coastal environment. This of course creates a roll-on effect that encourages a knee-jerk reaction of Parks services in every state around the nation to lock the gates.

Peter and Lisa Hill live in what has to be one of the most beautiful places in Australia, the Northern Territory. Having so many great destinations so close to home almost required them to have a capable 4WD.

When it came time to choose one, they wanted something that was a reliable touring vehicle and big enough to cater for a couple of growing teenagers. Something else on the top of the agenda was the availability and range of aftermarket accessories, especially when out in the bush, so he can easily replace it if something breaks!

Not only should the Government of Australia stand by the automotive industry but they should also stand by the people of Australia in ensuring that LPG Rebates are available and are kept at a reasonable value when converting to autogas.  Not only will this help Australia environmentally but will also help cut fuel costs to working families.

Total Attraction

Posted by admin | 8 December 2011

People often have great inspiration on how to improve their vehicles by modifying or adding features.  This GQ is a definite head turner & we love the idea of how this has been achieved to make the Patrol more adaptable to different conditions.
 
Believe it or not, this GQ was originally intended to be a family tourer, but we suppose that is the path a lot of 4WDs take. Dad buys it to take the family 4WDing, but some mates invite him down to their farm in Cooma. Down the back somewhere, the tracks get a little tough and Dad puts a few dents in the rear panels. But instead of taking the family 4WD down to the panel shop, or just wearing those dents with pride, he plugs in the 9in grinder and lops off the back. All of a sudden, our family tourer is a full-blown comp truck.

New 200 Series Leaked Online

Posted by admin | 8 December 2011

Can’t wait for the release of the new 200 Series.  Landcruiser’s have always been an excellent vehicle for city & especially 4WD’ing off the beaten track.  Looks like the new vehicle will surpass its predecessors.
 

Check out these spy shots of the new 200 Series Landcruiser to be released next year.

These are all unconfirmed reports, but Toyota Australia has neither confirmed nor denied the images of the brand-new LandCruiser.

From a glance it’s got the fancy LED lights under the headlights, new sidesteps and a chrome front grille.
But that interior looks like it could get dirty.

What do you think? Good? No Good?

Why is Diesel More Expensive?

Posted by admin | 7 December 2011

Diesel’s may be more expensive but they are great vehicles to have and the cost can be made cheaper with a Diesel/Gas System.
We could help you cut down those fuel costs today!!!

Diesel was once flagged as the ‘green’ fuel of the future. But it’s still burning a hole in your pocket.

We all know diesel is dearer at the bowser, but do you know why?

There is a huge demand for diesel engines in the fleet market all around the country. This leaves little incentive for retailers and servos to pass savings on to you if they’re not getting any from the refineries.

To meet the demand for the fleet vehicles, we import almost 40% of our diesel fuel mostly from Singapore.

Simpson Closed for the Summer

Posted by admin | 5 December 2011

The Simpson Desert has always been a great place for the 4WD Enthusiast.  Pity that it will be closed for 4 months but it is all in the interest of safety which is so important for everyone concerned.  Time to start planning alternate holiday destinations and if you need improvement to your 4WD we could have what you are looking for

Yesterday at 6pm, the Department of Environment and National Resources, closed the Simpson Desert to all 4WDs and touring vehicles.

Both the Simpson and the Regional Reserve in South Australia have been closed until March 15th.

We all know the heat in the Simpson can be bad at the best of times, but during the summer, many can leave themselves open to serious problems with temperatures sitting around the mid-40s.

District ranger Tony Magor said “Temperatures in the Simpson Desert during summer are extreme, with daytime temperatures between 40°C and 50°C being common”.

What’s with these new 4WDs that are coming out today?

What happened to the engineers who started designing 4WDs with nothing but a big dirty diesel engine and a ruler? Are they still around?

Salesmen dish out sentences like ‘quiet on the road’ and ‘fuel efficient’. That’s great for the future, but let’s live in the past for a while, what do you reckon?

4WD of the Year? Get that thing Off-Road!

Posted by admin | 1 December 2011

This is a great little article, very amusing.. But we like luxury and ‘real’ 4wds.

Around this time every year, all motoring journos and mags come out with a 4WD of the year segment.

Don’t get us wrong, they’re always a good read. But when it comes to 4WD of the year, no one wants to see blokes scooting around in a luxury 4WDs just talking about the colour of the interiors and speed of the Bluetooth connectivity.

A 4WD of the year test should be taken into unfamiliar territory, and tested to the limits where folks like us really use their 4WDs.

If you have a 4WD you should take a look at our Diesel/Gas Options Available to increase power, torque & save on fuel costs!!!

Well it’s been a big year for me and the 4WD Action team, to say I’ve had a ball is an understatement!

Still got a month or so of filming left yet, before I hope to slow down and head north for a spot of warm-weather fishing and hunting.

Now I know I’m not alone in that idea, as I had the very good fortune of speaking to hundreds of like-minded folks at some 4WD shows over the last few months. It was great to meet so many people who share the same passion I do. But what struck me the most was just how much of a presence the 4WD community has in Australia.

Flat Out Doing Nothing

Posted by admin | 23 November 2011

Getting your 4WD home safely – all part of loving the lifestyle.

Here’s some expert advice on the right way to drag a dead 4WD back into civilisation

It’s a fact of 4WDing life that things can – and invariably do – go wrong when we’re out bush. That ratbag mate of ours Murphy and his Law ensure that things will go pear-shaped at the worst possible time – usually when you’re far from civilisation, out of phone range, and the last raspberry lemonade can has just had its contents drained.

Holden is Back in the Game

Posted by admin | 18 November 2011

Great to see a local car maker moving forwarded, stimulating our economy. We hope to see them release a diesel version of his car. If they don’t, we will be working to release a system for this car.

In 2013, Holden will release their first 4WD wagon since the Rodeo-based Jackaroo.

Information about the Colorado 7 is hard to come by, but you’ll know that this is the first 4WD wagon to come out of the Holden gates since 2003, when they stopped the production of the Jackaroo. The Colorado 7 is a spin-off from the Chevrolet Trailblazer, which is being showcased alongside the new-generation Colorado ute.

Great to see Ruthy out and about hanging with the local 4wders. For those who missed out and live around McCallum Park, you catch Ruthy this Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

A massive thanks goes out to everyone that showed up for the Kalgoorlie show at Centennial Park on Tuesday.

2500 people attended, which is an amazing effort for all the locals in the area. For those unable to get to one of the major shows, visits like this are always great for the crew and 4WDers alike.
The 4WD Action team need to throw out a huge thankyou to Eastern Goldfields 4WD Club. In case you missed
it, Ironman 4×4 and Milwaukee Power Tools were at the show too, with a selection of their gear for sale.
