I was wondering what the fuel usage is of the landcruiser and nissan utes compared to the wagons around both the city and at 100kph. Anyone with a Patrol with the Telstra body I would be interested in what fuel that combiation uses. I am interested in vehicles from 1999 onwards.

2006 4.2TDi Patrol
Steel DEKKER Tray
Steel/Alloy TSB Lift off body

about 15l/100 - but it weighs a fair heap fully loaded

Crusing lightly loaded 13l
Off-road/dunes etc prob closer to 18l

Hope that helps :-)

oh - and plenty of poke left to drag a trailer to over $1.35 for overtaking if required......

Thamks for the reply. Good looking body, the telstra units are higher than the cab so would expect them to use more than yours so yes it helps

I Have a 4.2L TD 2002 Patrol Tray back weighing in at 3.5ton it has a heavy tray & i carry a litlt bit of stuff round, no canopy to catch wind
I get 6.6k/lt on road, with a heavy foot. i can get it back to 6k/lt when im in a real hurry, mixed Highway & city use, hills & flat. loaded up will come back to 5.6k/lt, with heavy foot

Most objective way is to compare the Fuel Consumption Combined (ADR 81/01):

2006 Patrol 4.2 ITD C/C 12.9 l/100k
2006 Patrol 4.2 ST Wagon 11.6 l/100k

2006 HDJ79R (TD) Cruiser 11.7 l/100k
2006 HDJ100 (TD) wagon 11.2 l/100k

2006 HZJ79R Cruiser 13.1 l/100k
2006 HZJ105 Wagon 13.0 l/100k

My canopy plus extras have put mine up to about 13 l/100k at 100kph (an increase of 1.3 above the govt figure).

So, yes the cab/chassis uses a bit more than the wagons, and expect about 10% increase for the telstra body.

But if you buy a wagon, you'll add a roofrack and a heap of other stuff like cargo barrier/drawers/LR tanks etc and that will even up the fuel comparison.

Traytop camping suits us better and fully laden, on trips, the fuel consumption doesn't vary a lot between vehicles.

Thanks for the info Phil. I have admired set ups like yours and the Telstra Patrols. You bought up a valid point about the added extras to the wagon would make it close to your toyata fuel consumption although it seems the newer Turbo Toyotas are reasonable on fuel for the size.
Seems your happy with your tray back camper as I noticed you have had wagons before. I can imagine the benefits of a good trayback camper such as yours

Yep, we have used this vehicle for over 3 years now, and have no intention of going back to a wagon. The current setup is a lot easier to camp from - pull into camp, open the side, pull out a chair and something to drink, and you've done the setting up! Only thing left is to collect the firewood.
