Hi, good luck with the petrol, they love a drink those 3.2's.
I have a 2.8 diesel, gets average 10.5 km/litre.

Hey Nico, V6 single cab chassis always loaded with around 800kg of tools gets 6km/litre, around 6.5km/litre if I take it on a highway run. Cheers.

Recently did a run in our 2.8 TD Rodeo dual cab, fully loaded with camping gear and doing quite a bit of sight seeing in hilly terrain, and averaged 34 mpg over total trip of 550 kms. Sorry about the use of mpg's, but it means more to me than km's/l.

I notice if i drive a bit harder(not 'thrashing')-i get better economy. Also i have fitted a FinerFilter element. Consumption now just under 12 litres per 100km. Its a 3.2 v6 manual 4wd.
