Hi GUys
I am driving a 2.5lt Auto Triton, brand new and I am getting around 11l per 100km. Does anyone know what the towing numbers are? I normally drive my V8 Cruiser and it gets 16-18 and 25-28 when towing so the Triton is impressive so far.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks

Do yourself a favour and join the Pajero club of Victoria. Covers Triton as well. Wealth of knowledge and info on there. Just bought a new Pajero and I find the site awesome for info.

cheers

It all depends on the weight and size of the thing you are towing.

11 for towing isn't too bad though. If it is 11 for normal use then that is very poor indeed.

As with nearly all diesels, the fuel economy will improve a fair bit after you have put a few thousand km on the clock.
Nothing to worry about at this stage.

Did the economy check over the last few days and it's officially running at around 9 litres per 100 km so I imagine towing 1.2 tonnes will fetch around 11-12 after talking to a few mates in the south today with the same set up.

Thanks

New car mate. I have just clocked up 100klms on my brand new 3 .0 Pajero. 14 litres to 100 klm at moment...will improve considerably once run in and on country roads. Needs 3-5000 before she will be more frugal...

I am fortunate to have this vehicle for a week so I can decide if I want it or not. Looks like I will be getting it after towing my camper today. Did a great job so it ticks all the boxes. Looks like the big trip is about 18 months away now and looking forward to it.
Thanks Again.

My Triton is 13,000 kms old, auto.

General running around I am about 11/100

Towing van & car approx. 4.5 t. I have gone up to 18/100, but last trip I switched to manual mode & achieved 16/100

From what I have read, anyone stating 11/100 towing a van are kidding themselves.

I am also waiting for the fuel to improve as the km's increase..........

You should be getting better than 11/100.

In my Amarok I get about 9/100 general running around.
On the highway at 130km/h I get 10.5+/100.
On the highway at 110 km/h about 9/100.
Towing my camper trailer 12.09/100

I would have thought the Triton would get similar to the Amarok. If other Triton owners are getting better than you have a mechanic look at it.

Wow that's not good.

I just did a trip from Jabiru to Uluru and back for Xmas in a 200 series, 3 adults, 1 kid a 60 ltr fridge 1/2 full, one suit case and 3 10 ltr back packs, 2 roof bars and Alloy BBar.

On the way down we sat on 100 kph and we achieved 13.1 ltrs per 100 km.

On the way back I sat on 135 kph in the open speed limit section and achieved 16.4 ltrs per 100 km.
