Redbook says 76lt tank and about 13km/100kms - brand new

We (briefly) owned a 2003 dual cab model which had towed a caravan around Australia twice and it was using about 15 on the highway and 18-22 around town

HTH :)

Sounds about right - 600km to a tank highway cycle, manual, light load, driven at 100 kph. Using cruise control can knock this down by 10% - probably the same for auto. Some people have reported terrible consumption figs around town for Jacks with the same motor - 20+l/100km. Check the O2 sensor if you're using more than 13 highway and 18 city.

Someone also suggested disconnecting the battery for 24 hours to reset the engine management system Pete. I'd check further before trying that.

I've got a 2004 3.5 v6 rodeo dual cab
I average approx 15 litres per 100 km on petrol and 17 per 100 km on LPG.
I have a dual fuel set up
I service it regularly every 7 to 10 k
Have just clocked over 200 k and very happy, timing belt at 160k and I also have a 110 litre long range fuel tank (petrol) and a 80 litre LPG tank.
may have to look into a new O2 sensor

For some reason the rodeos seem to use more fuel then Jacks but their are a lot of variables. Autos seem to av close to 100ks less per tank, and the older lighter 98/99 models with free wheeling hubs would get down to 11/100 with out much trouble. My heavier 03 Se gets about 400ks to a tank around town and 500 on a trip(I fill with about 15to 20l left), while my sons older 99se will add 40 to 50ks to theses figures.
But they are a very reliable long lasting motor with quite a few around with over 400000ks untouched.
Cheers Pete
