Hi Guys

I was after some numbers on the 2H and 12HT. Towing and not towing. Does anyone have these numbers?

Thanks
Rob

We had an '84 model HJ60, Rob, with 2H. Fair while ago, but seem to recall that in ideal conditions, we'd get 7-9 km/L. Occasionally a little better, in cold weather, no aircon, and more often than not a little worse, in high temps & headwinds, when it would fall to 6-7 km/L.

Can't help with 12HT, but if I owned one I wouldn't be worried about economy.........sigh!

My old 1980 2h 4 speed 60 series use to get around 12 - 13 lph on 31 x 10.5 x 15 tyres not towing and my 1986 5 speed 12ht sahara around 11.5 lph on 33 x 12.5 x 15 tyres with a 2.5" exhaust not towing. They should get a bit better with a snorkel fitted.

Hi John
I get 18l per 100km not towing with the V8 petrol so I could live with that. The worst figures I ever got was 32l per 100km in NQ around Black mountain towing 2.25 tonnes.

I have just returned from towing my boat Bunbury - Exmouth. The car is a 1983 HJ60 with a 2h and 5 speed. The boat is a 1982 Quintrex centre console - weighing approx 1.2t loaded with camping gear. With a tailwind on the way there, sitting on about 90 - 95 we got between 14 - 17 L/100 (getting worse the further north we went prob due to tailwind stopping, hillier roads, and hotter temps...). On the way back it was into a headwind and sitting on about 100 we were getting closer to 20 L/100. Without towing I get about 12.5 L/100 sitting on about 95 - 100. The car has 31 10.5 15 AT tyres and a Flat roof rack. Every hill hurts it!!!

Ps - I wish I had a 12ht in it!

It has just clicked over 470000... I bought it unlicensed for $500, and have spent about $2000 on paint, brakes, cooling system, swivel hubs, etc doing all the work myself... It leaks a bit of oil, but goes great!

My HJ47 averages around 6-7 k's per litre. It's pretty consistent on either hard or soft surface. The only 2 things that drive it down are:

1. head winds and
2. anything over 95 kph

and you can see the fuel gauge move...
