Phil,

It is getting late here but those figures don't look right to me. 7.6 lt/100k

Well spotted Wayne,
We didn't refill at Wiluna, it was Meekatharra.
Revised figures are a total of 2544 kms and , 379 litres of fuel at 6.71 kms/litre.

sorry about that Doug,

Cheers

Doug,

When I did it last year I carried 270 from Wiluna, filled 205 lt at well 23 and had enough to get to Rabbit Flat via Wolf Creek Crater.

You will have to top up somewhere.

There is a article in the latest Overlander mag and there would be something on this site about the amount of fuel.

Doug back in '91 we did the whole CSR in my HJ75 troopy. We had 200litres on board at well 23 and arrived at Halls Creek with 40 litres left. That included numerous side trips to visit wells plus a two day cross country detour via Balgo Hills as the northern section beyond well 50 was flooded and unpassable.
360 litres should be enough for the whole CSR.

Also in a Troopie, averaged 16lt per 100k overall. North to south, carried 240lt and at Well 23 had to scrounge around to find mt 20lt drums to use up the 200lt drum.

Used 160lt to get to well 23 from Willuna with a few side trips and visiting every well. Of that 240 carried 160 was in tanks.

Another HJ75 troopy with 2a/3c in '92 we used 170l from Halls Creek to well 23 and less than that to Carnegie. We had to leave the CSR at well 9 due to flooding.
The top half is where you will use the most fuel. We took 100l at well 23 and had enough to get to easily Laverton before refuelling.
