I have recently purchased a 2003 Landcruiser 100 Series GXL (4.2Ltr Diesel) and wonder if anyone who owns one (or has owned one), could give us some information as to the fuel consumption (both highway and offroad driving).

Thanks
Dominic

Hi Dominic,

I get between 13 l/100 and 17 l/100 with my naturally aspirated

former being no more than 100km/h 2WD with a light foot on good roads

latter being heavily loaded and some 4WDing.

I'm pretty happy with it - 800+ks from both tanks easily.

Ciao for now
Andrew

Hi Domini,

I've got a 2002 turbo diesel 4.2litre. Use it fort work every day and average a good 1000k's between fill ups - tanks not quite empty ( warning light not on). I worked out the consumption soon after buying it and it was just ubder 10 lkitres per hundred k's. Obviously how you drive the vehicle also affects consumption.
I just recently towed my camper trailer to coffs harbour and back on the black top and used approx the main tank worth of petrol.

hope this helps.

cheers

Ian

round town 8km/litre
country crusing driving 10km/litre
highway 100 to 110km/h 8.5km/litre
towing caravan 7km/litre
towing caravan head winds hilly roads 6km/litre
drive carefully and do not race away from traffic lights or charge from one traffic light to the next. Driving with a light foot makes a big difference to fuel consumption

I have a 2002 100 series GXL Turbo Diesel and have kitted the vehicle out quite extensively for outback touring. On the French Line in the Simpson Desert we got about 16.7 litres per 100 kms, and on the Ann Beadell Hwy we managed 13.88 litres per 100 kms. With full fuel the car weighs in around 3 tons as per the weigh bridge at North Ryde before we load up for the bush. Around Sydney we generally get 12 litres per 100 kms. Normal highway driving with the roof rack off we get a bit under 10 litres per 100 kms at an average of 100 km/h. Loaded roof rack puts it back up to 12 L/100 km. The vehicle has been tuned by a very famous pair of specialist diesel mechanics and has a lot more power an no more turbo lag.

Dominic,

Ours goes from 10L/100km for highway up to about 14 or so for 4WDing. Sand would be 16+, but I have never measured it (too scared......lol). We generally get over 1000km or so out of both tanks, without any low fuel lights coming on. Works out good for us, as 1000km is about 1 months worth of driving (excluding holidays and things), and I get paid monthly.

We have no roof racks, and tall skinny tyres, so I think both of those help towards the fuel consumption. Next set of tyres will be 235/85 or 255/85, so we'll see if the consumption goes up.

Cheers,

Chump

I would comment that from my experience the HDJ105 (Turbo Diesel) is about 20% more frugal than the HZJ105 (normally aspirated diesel) which I was talking about and which it sounded like you had although your post was a little ambiguous.
