I average 11 ltre/100km on the highway and it climbs to roughly 13ltre/100km doing beach work or towing a camper trailer.Most likely would be the same around town as your accelerating and stopping a lot.

Auto appear to give better performance than manual. The gearing is higher.

I keep a full log of consumption on my manual. 12/100K highway (family of 4). Usually around the 14L/100K with camper, food, water. This gets worse as you would expect when 4WD is used.

Hi Franksy,

I average 11.8 l/100km on city running and 15.7 l/100km towing my van. I rarely do a country run without the van but estimate I get 10.5 l/100km when I do.

I have 285/75 (33") tyres fitted and my speedo reading is correct. Note that most GU's have a 6-7% error on the standard tyres (reads high hence gves false good economy)

I have a Dtronic fitted and it never affected fuel economy even though it added noticeably more power.

Cheers

Captain

11-12 ltrs / 100ks
I think you would find this the average and dont forget it also comes back to how hard you push the right foot
