Is this where we say WOW 10.43L/100km...you must have a lot of shoelaces in your fuel tank.

and pushing the vehicle doesnt count.

Bill
These figures you are quoting equate to 10.4 l/100kls. In my opinion they are quite accurate. We have the same vehicle and when we're not towing we have figures comparable to yours.

Last week we were towing our Jayco camper in the area you mentioned and for the trip of 2,800 kms, we averaged 12.3 l/100kls.

This just proves that BILL S with his FITCH is no better than a normal Cruiser, so only verify's they are a waste of money.

HI Robert S, As you know the area you can appreciate that my vehicle covered som 60klms of very wet slippery road in it s check,also some time ago I towed a laden trailer thru that area and still returned 10.6l/100.Now a run to Douglas Park and return reads 9.6L/100.So Shane QLD I would suggest that you pull your head in until you try it.And if you are in QLD Shane talk to Paul Riley on 47724077

Happy days BILLS

I've got a 2005 GXL same as Bill's. Sometimes I get similar economy, without any "White Man's Magic". Other times it drinks like the Mrs. (she's the drinker in our family) ;-)

But I'm damned if I can see that far down the refuelling pipe to see "both tank openings". The only way I can tell one tank is full is by a slight change in sound while refuelling.....Oops, just realised you said filled to the top.

that sounds like excellent economy. One question, what model of toyota turbo diesel was it? prado 90, 110, cruiser 80, 100, etc. I had a man look for the answer on the thread but couldn't find it. Is it staring me straight in the eyes?

Hi Sam
My vehical is a 2005 GXL Landcruiser 100sTD. It has done about 8000kls. I Picked it up in Dec 05. I have traded in from an 80s 4.5ltr petrol and am most impressed with the fuel economy. I am going over to Beachport on the next weekend and am looking foward to trying it out on the beaches over there.

Bill

Following up on our fuel usage on our trip to Beachport
General running around before we left: 432kls, 42.5l (9.83l/100kls)
Geelong to Beachport and some sand driving 576.9kls, 65.7l (11.3l/100kls)
Sand driving and return trip: 702kls, 77.8l (11.08l/100kls)
These figures are very good in my opinion. They are mainly highway as it is approx 480kls from Geelong to Beachport.
The sand driving was very good and the vehicle handled it with ease and power to spare. These auto's make you very lazy as allyou have to do is point the direction and the car does the rest.
I hope these figures are what you are looking for.

Regards
Robert
