Will be doing the Canning in August and was wondering for those that have travelled the route in a NS/NT Pajero what fuel economy they returned.

Graham .
If it's a deisel and your not towing you would expect to use about 15 litres per 100 km

Thanks Mark. We did the Simpson 2yrs ago and got around 16 but good to know it will be a little less specially as we are preceding the CSR with the Anne Beadell, Connie Sue and Gunbarrel.

I did this trip with the pajero club about two years ago. I had a Great Wall X240 petrol at the time , and I was getting 14 per 100k and I was considerably more economical than all the Pajs on the trip. Every time we filled up I was at least 10 to 15 litres less to fill up. They were all diesel and could not understand how come I was more economical than them. Fuel costs out there are expensive (ie +$3.20 per ltr) Alsp if you require a drum drop on Canning you need to order about 6 weeks before you go.

Hi Graham D2,

it is difficult to give a definitive answer to your question, as fuel economy has a lot to do with weight, aerodynamics (how high you have your roof rack loaded if you have one), if you are towing, and your right foot. So similar vehicles may not have the same fuel economy.

As an example, while I don't have a Pajero, my brother-in-law & I have 200 Series Landcruisers, and our fuel economy is very different. My vehicle is an MY17 with a DPF, his is an MY14 without a DPF. We both have long range fuel tanks with the same capacity. We both have roof racks, although mine is longer. He has a Torque Converter Lockup Kit, I do not. I tend to carry more weight than he does, so on a recent crossing of the Simpson Desert, I averaged 18 Ltrs/100 Km, and he averaged 15 Ltrs/100 Km. This included the entire trip from Melbourne & back. So as I said earlier, similar vehicles may not have the same fuel economy.

Hi your best bet would be the Pajero Club of Victoria,they have a big web site.
