I have a 2003 TD hilux, just clocked 20,000km, with ARB bullbar, rear bar, side steps, snorkell and carryboy canopy (heaviest canopy on the market but looks great).
With all these extras and standard highway tyres I was getting 10 litres/100km (10km/litre). After fitting BFG All Terrains I now get 11-11.5 litres/100km (8.5-9km/litre). Though the speedo/odometer is now inaccurate due to bigger diameter tyres. Using my GPS to calculate a 6% innacuracy means the 11-11.5 litres is per 106km travelled not 100km. I then do my sums and the result is 10.4-10.8 litres/100km (9.2-9.6 km/litre).
These figures are for city driving with 40 psi in the tyres and offroad the fuel consumption can increase up to double.
You could try to find your speedo/odometer inaccuracy to calculate the true consumption figures.
Hope this helps, Alfred (Smithfield NSW)

I know when I put 31x10R 15 BFG on my double cab TD hilux using a GPS the speedo was spot
on. From memory for every 100km with the original tyres I was doing around 106km.
I would get between 470 to 650 km out of a tank full depending what I was pulling. It never really loosend up till about 40,000km.
