I would like hear from owners of either 3.2 petrol or 3.1td jackaroos, specifically I would like to find out about fuel consumption and towing ability of both models. Everywhere Ive looked on the forum I can only seem to find details of the later model 3.5 and 3.0td

G'day
We have a 3.2 petrol Rodeo. Average around town consumption low 13'sl/100k- highway touring mid 12'sl/100k. We also tow a 22 ft trailer sailer on a bogie trailer. All up weight would have ta be nudging 1.5 ton and no problems with power- even towing up Maquarie Pass or Mount Ousley outa Wollongong. Even towing it from up here (near Sydney) to Paynesville on the Gippsland lakes, it was a very comfortable trip.
Any other info you require - give me a email:

I've a '92 3.2 petrol with 180,000k's on it and around town it's still giving 13.5 - 14 lts per 100. It doesn't use or lose any other fluids and apart from regular maintenance has cost me nothing else to run.
We've only towed small box trailers, which it doesn't seem to notice and my mates 2.5 tonne fibreglass cruiser just to the boat ramp locally but even then it had no problems and didn't seem too pushed....

Cheers

G'day zoom,

we have a 3.2 '97 base Jack, done over 200,000 kms. We have towed camper trailers around 1.3t without trouble. We use 5th overdrive only on flat, straight roads and 4th the rest of the time. Saves the clutch. Some steep, long hills we need to change down to 3rd. Fuel economy towing goes well up depends on terrain. Guessing 16-17L/100km highway and sandy tracks I don't want to know. I try to keep the revs down without the engine having to lug, not accelerate too much up hills and cruise down them. Generally save a lot of fuel slowing to 90km/h on the highway.

SK
