    Re: Fuel Consumption on 3 Door versions

    My fuel economy went out the window as soon as I put the muddies on, it is still not that bad with about 9.5l/100 on the highway, and 12.5 around town.

    Noticed a nice increase in power with the snorkel but no real economy gains, maybe as I had the bar fitted at the same time.

    Re: Fuel Consumption on 3 Door versions

    I have 8k on the clock now, had added an ARB Safari bar and BFG LT265/65r17 tyres and just used a full tank of around town (Brisbane) driving and got 9.1l/100 (my calculation from litres used and klm travelled). I forgot to check the in car average before refuelling, but it was around 8.8 or something, so the in car computer always shows a better consumption that what you actually get.

    I am happy with that consumption, on the highway is where the diesel really shines, as I get low 8l/100. Off road low range the consumption goes up, as you would expect.
    The vehicle is a gem though, no problems and very happy with my choice

    Just got back from a 15 week trip covering 9150 Klms most of which was towing a 14 foot Jayco Pop-Top caravan (about 1900 kgs).
    Average fuel consumption was 13.5 ltrs per 100 Klms.

    Ok Just did a return trip to the sunshine coast dragging a 12x6x6 trailer (aerodynamics of a house brick).Fuel consumption was awfull...(to be expected)average for the trip worked out to 16.9 l/100 klms...with the worst being a long slog around Goondi where it hit 21.7 l/100 klm..Curious that consumption didn't vary much with the extra load coming home (2540 kgs on the BBQ plates)

    On a trip to Birdsville last year towing a camper (750kg) I averaged 13.7L/100km. This figure could have easily been reduced with more conservative driving. I've found traveling at 90km/h returns noticably more efficient fuel figures.
