Petrol Pajeros use 90 L( Mt Dare to B'ville), so take an extra Jerry or two to cover yourself.

FYI
Although I do not own a Triton, here was my fuel consumption with my Prado.

Crossing west to east
Petrol 3.4L V6 Auto Prado used 130L from Mt.Dare to Birdsville (628km) roughly 20.5 L/100km . So with the two standards petrol tanks (150L in total) I diidn't need to use a jerry can.

Hope this helps
