Anyone had experience?

Triton V6 manual about 14L/100km @ 1120 km/h (on the open road)
around town about 16L/100km (stop/start isn't friendly, or is it the way I drive??!!)

Cheers,
Dave

HAHAHA
oops....gud tipest eh ?!

of course that's 14L/100km @ 120km/h
It usually doesn't vary too much from this figure when you're on the open road. push it any harder than 120, and it'll bite you (like all vehicles will). I found 115-120km/h optimal cruising speed.
Towing?
So long as you tow @ 90-95km/h you will get reasonable milage.
Try towing at 100km/h, and you'd be surprised at the extra juice she drinks for the extra 5km/h.
BTW - I was towing a 21' fibreglass boat from Perth to Karratha when I did this. The worst I got on the two, due to north easterly headwinds was 550km out of my 120L long range tank.
When I dropped my speed down to 90km/h, I got 700km.

I now have a turbo-diesel Landcruiser. I still miss the Triton; great truck and never let me down in the 50,000km I owned it. Not a single problem. Great cars. Shocking turning circle. They need a load in the back, like all 4WD Dual cabs, to smooth out the ride.
With Turbo-Diesel experience now, I'd be tempted to look at the Turbo-Diesel Tritons, or better yet, wait for the new ones which are due sometime this year. If they're running the 3.0 DID Turbo's then they'll be a great truck.

I can't comment on the T/D Rodeo's, but my mate has one and loves it.
I haven't driven a new T/D Nissan Navara yet either; they look good on paper. Don't know anyone who has the new T/D Hilux.. [?]

Hope the above helps.

Cheers,
Davo

Hi Zebu,

I have a 2000 Holden Frontera - pretty much the same 3.2 litre Isuzu engine as far as I know.

Being a 5-door wagon, it weighs in heavier than a Rodeo, but last time I checked, fuel consumption ranged between 11L/100km on the highway and around 15L/100km in the city.

Cheers,

Benn
