Between Laverton and Coober Pedy, apart from IIkurlka, are there any other places to get fuel,
Does anyone have the track distances, Laverton to IIlkurlka and IIkurlka to Coober Pedy.
Estimated diesel fuel consumption L/100km. Using a V8 Toyota Ute, towing a small trailer.
Thanks in advance, Cheers

George, have you examined the Exploroz trek notes for the Anne Beadell?

Here is the link: - Anne Beadell Treknote

You'll find everything you need in the treknote which as a member you can download. 'Directions' gives you full mileages and estimated times for all legs of the journey, "Fuel supply and Usage" will provide your estimated fuel needs by vehicle and engine size and also outline exactly where fuel is available.

Safe Travels,

Mick

The trek notes certainly answers most of my questions, looks like there is only one fuel stop along the Anne Beadell Hw. I will have to carry at least 1 jerry can of fuel on the second leg to Coober Pedy. Cheers

We did Coober Pedy to Volkes Hill last April and even though we spent a fair amount of time in 3rd and 4th gear it didnt seem to harm our fuel consumption to much. In a D-Max towing a one and a bit tonne trailer it only dropped maybe 40km on a tank full

We did it last year in July, DMAX towing a camper trailer. Factor in you'll spend several days in second and third gear - I can recall one day just beyond Ilkurlka where I got into third for about 300m, the rest of the day was second gear. It's not difficult but the conditions require you to drop tyre pressures (factor that into fuel consumption too) and take it easy. One couple we met shook a set of driving lights off the bulbar because they were on a mission. Trip guides say allow 7 days, we took 9 travelling plus a rest day just sitting and relaxing, total 10 days Laverton-Coober Pedy.
