I currently own a TD double cab hilux and am thinking of trading it on to a TD Landcruiser 100 series, year 2000 plus. I would like to know the economy and reliability of these 4wds . I have heard some people say they get about 12L/100 km. This would make it more economic than my hilux.

Farmer, We get 6-7 km/L out of a '97 80 series TD, best of 10 km/L. Took a Hilux d/cab 3 litre and 79 series ute n/a diesel on 465 km trip and they used almost same amounts, within a litre or two.

Just brought a 79 series turbo ute home from Mt Isa, and got 6.6 km/L, with under 1,000 kms on clock. You wont be sorry with the TD100, except may be the front ifs. Hooroo....

Thanks for your reply Bob. My brother in law, who works for the DNRE or what ever they call themselves now, used drive a 80series diesel wagon and got really good economy and it didn,t even change much pulling a big tandem trailer with a load of aviation fuel on. When he got the 100 series diesel ( all standard wagons ) the economy was not as good.From the toyota he went and tried the 3 L td Nissan ( not bad changing your 4wd every 6 to 8 months ). He didn,t mind the nissan --maybe a bit firmer ride. The thing I don,t like of the nissans is that their seats are all too low. You have a far better seating position in the toyotas. The back seats of the nissan are even worse. They are low and the floor near the doors drops away about two inches. Even the older nissan wagons back seats are all low.
