Bad information..
2.7 never came in any landcruiser....
soo a landcruiser forum wont help you out.
your best bet is a hilux forum as the old and some of the current base models run such a motor.
and economy SPECIFIC questions can be answered with exact models..
than the old prado which ran a 2.7 4pot but could be different configeration...
then again not really helpful comparing a tray ute to a prado wagon on fuel economy....mods

There are a few things you can check your self,tyre pressures,brakes dragging,look around the engine for any loose electrical connectors to sensors and hoses adrift
If you don't find any ask your mechanic to run a self test and check that the exhaust oxygen sensor is cycling when cruising

Has it always been thirsty or is this something new?

I hired the same as described, but a 2WD auto about a year ago, it had only done approx 17000 k's and was rental.
I had this for about a week and done around 500k's, it took 58 liters to fill once I returned which I was bit surprised, worked out to be a bit under 12l/100ks doing my normal daily commute and bit of running around, as a direct comparison I used my wifes 2005 mitsubishi 380 for a week and it got 9.8l/100, my aftermarket turboed 1HZ powered cruiser wagon usually does around 12.7-13l/100.
I would've expected better from a 2WD hilux in standard trim with no load driven the same as I would drive normally

G/Day Chris, I think a well tuned one should do about 10-11ltrs /100k,

But if its not to severe don't worry they are one of Toyotas best petrol engines, my son inlaw has just tipped 600,000ks in his and the bloody thing has never had any mechanical issues what so ever!.

Cheers Axle.

Check your air filter to see if its blocked or very dirty, but they where never known for economy.
Great little engine though.
Cheers Pete
