For diesel I get about 10 - 12 l/100km in the country, 13-14 mixed and 15-16 purely around town with heavy traffic. If I am really heavy on the right foot it can get to 17 - 18 around town. I have a roof rack which I think added 1 - 1.5l/100km.
If I cruise on freeways at 100 - 110 it sits between about 8-12 l/100km most of the time.

The RACQ performed a test on the 4.5l V8 diesel Sahara and according to them averaged more than 16l/100k, I'd say they would have mixed it up with highway and town work.

They didn't split their results between city and highway but I'd say you're results are in the ball park. Not too bad for a big vehicle and a V8. That torque of 650nm would make it a very capable tow vehicle.

Do you tow with it, if you do curious as to what you are getting?

Roscoe, I did some around town towing but just with a little 7x5 open trailer with the figures included in the above. Also some of the country work was with a bunch of stuff on the roof rack.

My summary would be that it is quite frugal if you baby it, but if you push it a bit then the fuel consumption goes up pretty quickly. The only problem is that it's really hard to resist flooring it for the first 5000km though. Feeling the acceleration and hearing that V8 Growl makes 18l/100km a cheap thrill

Thanks Tony. Know what you mean about it being hard not to resist flooring it I had a petrol V8 4.7 Grand before my V6 diesel..had a sports system on it and that V8 growl is a nice sound.

I've got a system on my diesel and whilst it has a nice sound it's hard to beat that V8!

Nevertheless the diesel is a very quick machine, in fact, slightly quicker than the V8 I had. At least when I do give the diesel a bit of a nudge the fuel consumption isn't as bad!!

I noticed in the latest RACQ mag that BMW now have a twin turbo 3.0litre diesel puts out 200kw and 565nm of torque. BMW claim it slurps 8.8l/100k; 0 - 100km/h in 7.2 secs, seriously quick!!!

Good discussion on this on LCOOL forum. Safe to say that diesel is far and away superior but it costs an extra $10K. But then resale value will more than compensate for that...And, depends on how long you want to wait...petrol, probably in stock, diesel, expect 3-4 months at least.
