Re: Great Wall Wingle

Yeah we do alot of mods to our 4WD's it's a big and very hard country, but it is also a very beautiful country with much wildlife and wonders. I'm sure you will enjoy the forums there though no matter what country your in.

Did they ever end up releasing a petrol Wingle where you are or just the 2.8 diesel? You've had quite a bit to do with GWM vehicles haven't you over the last 2 years ? We now have the Hovers here also, they got a very good safety crash rating which upset Toyota lol :thumb:

Re: Great Wall Wingle

Nice photo Micodelija, I'm sure many Australians will look forward to your input.

Trevor, Australian gas warehouse has a LPG system for the V240 here in Australia but at the moment I think thats the only system. Ask your local LPG fitter for a price, if they say theres nothing tell them to ask or look at AGW's website

Hi Micodelija:
You say that the LPG system is very good and I'm sure that it is economical to run.
But can you comment about the disadvantages of it, when compared to the petrol model?
We have all heard about things like starting problems under certain weather conditions, lack of power, etc.. Could you elaborate on your opinion of the performance.
Thanks

Re: Great Wall Wingle

first of all most important is to pick quality LPG sistem, you have many italians and other makers, like lovato, landi renzo, tommaseto, brc,omvl and others, there is also good and quality dutch model prince or AG

also very important is that when you choose the LPG sistem, you must choose a right one for your engine specifications, many times because it's cheaper people choose a wrong sistem for their car, so they are having problems

there is no any problems with lpg during any weather conditions, this should not have any effect, my car work fine during hot summer or cold winter, no matter what, problem can be if you don't have regular maintance, mainly you must check the ECU of lpg to check the parameters and replace the filter for it, also you can use aditives which can provide better work of your lpg injectors

there is a small lost on power, mainly in acceleration of car, also fuel consuption is little bit higher when you compare it with driving on gasoline, but cost is cheaper, so there is still room for benefit, also my car didn't lost anything on driving skills, i can drive 180 km/h on highway on lpg, the same like on gasoline

here is just a sample, we have put some lovato lpg sistem on hover, but it didn't work so good on cars, car was much slower and there was problem with too big consuption of lpg, then we try to omvl and landi renzo sistems, car work much better, because they offer more expensive sistem which is better adopted to our engines, the same is with BRC, many models of GWM in italy have BRC sistem and work very good, most important is to buy a sistem which is best to your engine specification, and you must have a service in which you can thrust that they will told you good information, not just one to sold you the sistem,no, important is that the sistem which you buy is approved by manifacture for the engine, usually you can also find a list of engines which is supported

Re: Great Wall Wingle

For the Aussie's interested in LPG this is the only system I know of approved for use on the V240 (wingle) in Australia currently.

http://www.australianlpgwarehouse.com.au/Latest-News/The-Great-Wall-V240.aspx

Can't tell you anything about quality or how well the V240 runs with it as I haven't heard anyone using LPG on them here yet. As to your new car warranty you will have to take that up with your Great Wall dealer.

But it shouldn't void a warranty, if you have something brake or fault directly because of the LPG unit or installation then Great Wall doesn't need to cover it but maybe the LPG installer/company will cover it if it's related to their work. If you really want to know if your covered or not check with your local comsumer rights authority

Re: Great Wall Wingle

Thanks for the feedback about the LPG Micodelija. I wonder why Chinese manufacturers are not doing more to promote it, since it seems the environment-focused government would support its development.
So far the only manufacturer who has seriously promoted LPG, that I know of, is Geely in its Vision LPG model.

Re: Great Wall Wingle

Just wondering if anyone has any information on the front and rear differential's and axle splines in the Wingle with the 2.4L gasoline motor? I'd really like to see if there is any diff locks that will fit this pickup.

I have seen short video's of the Hover with diff locks, awesome traction.

Hi V240

the front axle should be an isuzu 10 bolts 17 splines, and the rear a toyota 8" with 45mm bearing 30 splines.

For the rear you can fit almost anything, but i recommand a detroit truetrac, really a nice diff.

For the front..you don't have much choice, maybe ARB or a company in the US get custom made autolocker, but...on an all rounder i would not go that way, just a treutrac in the rear.

Re: Great Wall Wingle

Thanks Syche,

Being a IFS vehicle I'd really like to do the front as well if I can find anything to fit it as it's very easy to lift a wheel. I think the vids I saw of a Hover with a diff lock was the Truetrac, and if I can afford them would be my first choice. I'm also looking at some local made auto lockers here in Australia which are alot cheaper than the Detroits.

Re: Great Wall Wingle

Hi I am from Rarotonga, Cook Islands and I purchased a Greatwall Wingle (Brand New) from our Cook Islands Greatwall Distributor 2 and a half years ago (Raro Cars, Avarua, Rarotonga). Just after the 1 year warranty expired, we have been having so many problems with the truck. We have had to replace so many parts in such a short life time of the vehicle. Is anyone able to tell me how I can make contact with the actual people who manufacture these trucks as I have been searching for so long to try and make contact with them but have had no luck.
