I don't know really, just thought it wasn't to bad for a vehicle that size , max speed would have been about 95kph but the average was probably about 75kph or less

That's not bad.

I've just driven Perth to Dongara and back towing the Jayco.

Easter mahem trafic up and back, overtook everything in sight, no regard for fuel economy, a good head wind from Dongara to about Eneaba (felt like I was towing someone elses Jayco as well) and used 119 lts of diesel, and cost to refill in Gingin was $167.00

Yeah, sorry bout that!!!

3.0 Td GU Patrol Auto. 112,000 Klm just me and the missus and a full water tank in the Jayco (about 940kg all up) and a half-full Waeco.

No comparison to your vehicle whatsoever, I just felt like chucking it in!

Doug,
That is about spot on as that works out to 7.8 km /lt at anavaerage speed of 75-80km/hr.Iusually travel at average speed of 95km/hr with my troopy and get an average of 7.5 km/lt so all is well.

Doug,

The Boss & I went to the Isa on monday to pick up a new tojo turbo ute on tuesday. Course it wasn't ready, but got away early afternoon, back to Winton, that night.

Filled up at home, new ute took 107L, and the 2002 ute(also turbo) took 111L, for neat 700clicks. About 6.3 - 6.5 km/L. Not too bad on that road through Kynuna, at 100-110 kph.

Wall to wall grasshoppers past Kynuna, after dark. Flat out seeing through the w'screens by time we got to Winton.

Country looks a picture from Winton to the Isa. Not before time either.

Hooroo...
Seen it all, Done it all.
Can't remember most of it.
