Just bought a 3.0TD GU Auto and absolutely LOVE IT!!!!!!!.
Just curious to know from other GU owners about fuel consumption. I get about 9 - 10kms to litre around town and open road (average) and about 6 to 6.5 kms to litre towing a van (1300 kgs pop top), sound about right or not???

Mick,

Theres heaps in the archives about GU's and thier thirst or lack of. Search for GU & fuel or something like that, mine gets about 10.5 to 13.5 l/100km depending on the stress its under, and averaged 14 from Vic to Fraser and back full load and roofrack.

All the bestSo many places to go!
So much work to do :0(

GU 3.0TD Auto - 33000k in last seven months. Rookracks since new. Consistently get 12.5l/100km around town, and as good as 9.8l/100km on the highway with a load. Economy seems to have started improving after the first 20000km.

Sounds about right Mick. Reasonably good for such a small motor in a large 4wd I think.
