I have a 91 NG with the 3 ltr V6 and get about 14 l/100km around town and 13 l/100km on the road depending on the load. Towing our Jayco Dove at 100kmh drops it to about 15.5.

Cheers

It does work out to 13.7 litres / 100 kms.

Easy to work out. Divide the lites used by the kilometres travelled and then multiply by 100
Life's great and it just keeps getting better

i have a 91 paj turbo dsl with a 145 lt tank i get around 1,270 ks out of my tank to dead empty on an average of 1200 ks so thats around 12.08 pre 100ks

100 x 145ltrs devided by how many ks you have traveled = ltrs per 100 ks

Peter,

13lt per 100k is not that bad. In the old money 10lt per100k is about 30mpg.

I get 15lt per100k out of the "office block" aka Troppie, which is not that bad, about 3ton and doesn't slip through the air like a Pajero. The other vehicle in my life is a Mazda 323 and it gets about 8lt per 100k.

To get a bit more range out of the tank, try to drop the speed that you are going. Sitting on 105kph or more will drop the fuel gauge real quick, sit on 95/100kph and you will get a better return.

13.7 Lt/100Ks around town is pretty good for a Paj 3Lt.
On the open road you'll easy get over 1000ks from a tank as you'll get better economy on a long run.

Cheers, John.
