Can anyone give me the fuel consumption of the diesel motor while towing. I'm thinking of buying one to tow a Jayco Finch which weighs just over a ton loaded. May even add an after market turbo, any feedback will be great.

I have a 92 T/D with 340K on the dial. I tow a full caravan and get 15ltr/100. It is a 19ft dual axle and normally travel between 90 and 95kph When i tow the camper trailer I get 13ltr/100. the trailer is about a tonne fully loaded .Just country travel and no towing 11/100 and city 12/100. with the camper and country, that is all off road included. I have been keeping records since I brought it and know that the the figures are acurate

After market turbo is a good idea. Did it to my 100 series and it is even more pleasurable to drive - I pull a trailer with about 1.5t all up. Just make sure you get a good Turbo and get it dyno tuned.
I hear good things about The Cooma Diesel in Canberra and Turboglide inWollongong. There are others that people on this forum have used and are happy with. Why don't you ask the question "If your diesel has an after market turbo and has done over 100ks trouble free with the turbo, can you tell me who did your turbo?"
Good Luck.

Here are some of my records towing with a 91 Tubo 80 with and intercooler fitted, towing a 12'8" Supreme Outback (about 1.6tonnes)
Date Fuel Dist Cost km/L L/100km Miles/Gal
15-Nov-02 84.37 448 $75.84 5.31 18.83 15.00
19-Nov-02 53.5 273 $46.28 5.10 19.60 14.41
20-Nov-02 46.32 244 $40.26 5.27 18.98 14.88
21-Nov-02 57.03 294 $52.98 5.16 19.40 14.56
22-Nov-02 29.07 166 $29.07 5.71 17.51 16.13

Wind and speed make the difference, on this trip I was solo on the hard top mostly in central Vic so avg speed was around 100km/hr, I do get better on the dirt or in convoy at about 90km/hr drops down to 15 to 14 km/L
