yep, worked that out now, only i assumed that members have (member) next to their screen name but this must be an optional extra as Voxson must be a member to get the rig picture but doesnot have (member) next to his screen name hence i assumed he was not a member and that anyone (members or not) could post pics of their rigs in the forum replies. If you can make sense of this reply your doin better than me

Thanks anyway

Hi Truckster,

My brother owns a '91 model RB30, and fuel figures are as follows:

H'way, lightfoot at 100-130kmh: 14.5ltrs/100klm
Around town: 17-18ltrs/100klm
Combination of medium offroad and H'way: 16ltrs/100klm

He has not worked out a soley offroad figure as yet, but would guess around 20ltrs/100klm in low range and sand.

I am guessing this is for your website?? Make sure you give the mighty RB30 a plug!!

By the way, his best figure to date was an economy run from Brisbane city, over the Towoomba range, and onto Dalby, all at the speed limit and with air con on. It returned 11ltrs/100klm. Not bad eh??

'89 GQ dual fuel. Roof rack, 65L water tank, drawer system etc. etc. Car has done 320,000k but the motor has only done10,000k since recon.

LPG around town (peak hour 5 days a week) 27L/100km
LPG cruising with Jayco Finch on the back around 25L/100
LPG worst ever - fast towing, headwind, aircon on 35L/100

Same conditions as above but for petrol... 25L/100, 20L/100, 26L/100

It seems that conditions have far more affect on LPG than on petrol consumption.

Cheers
