Gday to you all

After 4 petrol Landcruisers I have moved to a new 100S TD GXL. (Cant say graduated yet with the price of diesel as it is).

I am heading for the CSR again next month and would appreciate any actual fuel consumption figures you can provide for a 100S TD GXL Auto on the CSR in the usual config of max weight and no towing.

Have only clocked 7000km so far, mainly on the highway or in heavy sand towing my boat.

Thanks

Hi There Old Bushie,my uncle has one of these in auto and says he uses about 9/10 litres per 100lkms on the open road cruising at 100 with cruise control (always bragging about it)about 12/13 around town and 16/18 when pulling his 24 foot (huge mother) on the open road, that is with no off road use, dirt road ocassionally but not in4wd. Bought the cruiser for one purpose pulling the van. He reckons the best model he's ever had. Had a 80 series before that but in petrol reckons it used 16/18 round town and up to 20/24 (ouch) when pulling the van,but said it was a good old truck sold it with over 300.000klms still going.(personally I wouldn't buy somthing thats had the ass dragged out of it like that. He's also got a little barina they use for when they are back home to run around in. Paid I think about $74.000 new. Hope these figures give you some indication.

When I said not in 4wd I meant no low range stuff As these are obviously permanant 4wd

Tell you in a month,
Leaving our home in Karratha on Sunday for two weeks on the Gibb River Road and then two weeks doing the CSR south from Halls Creek to the southern side of Rudall River National Park and up through Telfar/Marble Bar on the way home. 5000kms all up. I've got a 100 series TD manual and have recently fitted a Long Ranger 182 litre sub tank (actually got 184 in it for a total of 280 litres) managed to get 274 litres in it on first fill which cost $343 in lovely sunny KTA. Latest prices for diesel at Well 33 is $2.20. Was also lucky enough to get my hands on a new ARB rear dual wheel carrier, which I've just fitted myself, and am very impressed with. The money I saved over a Kaymar payed for the tank. Took the wagon over the weigh bridge and goes 3.25 tonnes with me and the dog (no, it's not a bloody big dog). Will probably be a bit heavy with the wife, tin lids, 100 litres of water, camping gear, fridge, drawers, etc. etc.
Plan on keeping fuel figures and always fill 'till I can see it to get most accurate readings.
Cheers
Jayson

Thanks Jayson

I will look forward to some figures.

I am doing simillar trip in reverse. Anne Beadell, Tanami, Gibb River Rd, Kalumbaru etc around to Halls Ck again then home via the CSR.

Have done many simillar trips in my petrols but with only 7000km on my diesel don't have any definitive figures especially for the CSR.

How did you get so lucky with the ARB dual wheel carrier? Us mortals are still waiting.

Regards

Gday George

Thanks. I am aware of the trip planning figures but they are very generic 6 cyl 4.2l etc.

If all else fails I can use those figures. I am hoping for some "straight from the horses mouth" figures for an identical vehicle.

Cheers
