Re: Towing, what drive mode?
[QUOTE=scottg918514;1111601]In the warmer months, I'll be towing a boat, about 5000#.
The question, esp. with a diesel, is should I tow in Normal drive mode or sport. And if Sport, should I manual shift?
I'm guessing with a diesel, u want to keep the revs low.
Also, even after reading manual, sport mode is a little unclear to me. If in manual shift mode, does it downshift automatically if u slow down or stop?
We have the 5 speed box and I regularly tow caravans up to 3500kg. Best fuel economy and easy driving is in S4. It seems that 1:1 gearbox ratio gear is always best.
We have many clients with Landcruisers and they report the same results.
