Depends whether its petrol or diesel. Have a look at 'fuel consumption' under 'Trip Planning' on this website.
I've got a 1991 80series and found that with 31inch tyres the spedo was reading around 5-7km/hr faster than actual (using GPS). I reckon the odo was reading further distance too - my economy figures seemed almost too high at around 12 L/100kms on the blacktop and i think thats why.

Hi ian and julie.

Petrol or diesel dose it have long range tanks i think the toyota's tank ins 150l could be wrong. 4.5 petrol 750/ 850 sounds about right.

Thats spot on what I'm getting... 478km for the whole of the 95l petrol tank.
33"s, roof rack. 5km to the litre, all up 150l factory capacity.
Going by that its 754km to both tanks.

diesel would get around 1000, 750 would be great for a petrol, might even use more if pushed or heavily loaded, 20 + l/100 would be norm.

Hi,
We own a 94 GXL petrol 4.5l. On a good run we average between 750 to 925klms to 145lts. It all depends on what the driving conditions are like and how the vehicle is driven. The one problem that we have is that once we load up the vehicle with roof rack and associated camp gear, the camper and 6 people on board, our fuel consumption goes out the window, especially once we start driving up the coast road to Cooktown. (Lucky to get 550klms to 145lts). What do you mean the weather is great, it is fantastic.

Hi
16l/100 is about the best you can expect from a 4.5. Put it on sand and your looking 25-30. A head wind will increase it to 20, and if your in a rush, worse.
If its got accessories then that effects the outcome, as does tyre pressures and ....yada yada...
