Hi Eric,
This does not exactly answer your question but you may be interested.
I have a 91 80 series landcruiser, 4.5 L Turbo Charged Diesel, constant 4x4

I get around 6-6.5 Km/Lit, city driving, that is around 540-585 Km to a 90 L tank

On the highway I get 8-9 Km/L, 720-810 Km to 90 L tank.

This can vary depending on head wind or tail wind and load carried.
It will change substantially with off road driving, particularly in soft sand or mudKing Edward River, Mitchell Plateau

Eric
90-95 Km/h.
We were away for 3 months last year, travelled 13,000 Km, that is what we averaged.
Once you get your speed up around 100-110 Km/h the fuel consumption increases to 6-6.5 Km/Litre.
We were on holidays, so why go faster.

Eric, I have a 1990 80 series with the 3F engine and I am getting similar figures to yourself on both LPG and Petrol. My highway figures are fairly similar also. I think the best economy I have achieved was driving from Broken Hill to Camerons Corner via Tibooburra on one tank of LPG, over 400 kmsJust Do It!

Yes Eric, mine is the 4.0 litre. I do believe the 3F engine is the most uneconomical engine Toyota have put in a Cruiser. It also has bugger all grunt, especially on LPG.Just Do It!

Gday, I have a 1993 constant 4WD GXL Petrol LandCruiser and gets about 18L/100km, ie 450-480 on the main tank in the city. On open runs, this decreases to about 14-16L/100km on the open road. A lot will depend on driving style, added weight (bars, tools, golf clubs, long range tanks full of fuel etc), the mechanically soundness? of the truck etc. So yours are basically the same as mine, so don't feel bad.

Seeya, Roscoe.

My 80 is a standard diesel ( no constant 4x4)and on the highway i usually average about a 9.1 to 9.6 kms per litre which would appear to be slighly better than the constant 4x4 turbo diesel above. But there is a lot of unknown variables that could effect this.

Last week I did a round trip Cairns - Cape Trib - Cairns in company with 4.5 lt
petrol vehicle. We both had seven passengers on board and both vehicles are
fitted with roof racks. My manual diesel fitted with an after market turbo
used 47 liters, the petrol manual used 60 liters for the 330 klm round trip
or 12% more fuel. This may not sound like a lot but the two vehicles were
driven fairly gently and a petrol vehicle certainly has the ability to gulp
fuel when pushed even slightly. A 4.5lt petrol auto did the same trip a few days
later and used 74 liters or 36 % more fuel.

Eric,
I have a 92 4.5 petrol lc80 gxl 333,000km
looked up figures achieved on 12000 km central aust /kimberly trip last year(6 weeks)
fully loaded 3 tonnes. overall 4km per litre or 25litre/100
around town and highway I normally get about about 5 km per litre but truck is always 1/2 loaded and roofrack stays on.
might seem high but fellow I travelled with had 80 series 4.2 diesel gxl and i had achieved better economy than him. he even got his injectors and pump checked out when we got to broome.
easter trip this year (5000km)inc googs and gawlers averaged 4.5 km/litre. this is what i get towing boat on highway.
regards
howard

Thanks for all the great info guy's . I am sure now that part time 4 wheel drive will not help economy in any way ,
