Hi Qubert,

have you done a search? This has been discussed in previous posts. Personally, I'd just go and do it. It's my dream vehicle and if I could afford to change over, there'd be one sitting in my driveway now.

Cheers Mick

Not a ute, but my 5 seat troopy with 7000km up is averaging 15.3l/100km on the last couple of tanks with a mixture of highway/around town.

Towing my offroad campertrailer it sneaks upto 16.6l/100km

It is gradually improving as it wears in.....NO noticeable oil useage to date either.

My 76 wagon which is maybe a tad lighter unladen than the Troopy has an ARB steel bar and camping gear always loaded in the rear draw system (maybe 70 KGS) consistently returns 11.6 litres per 100 kms in town and on the highway.
Put the roof bars on and this drops to about 12.7, even unladen.
Now 12 months old with 20,000 on it and No it doesn't lose oil.

qubert,

This subject was covered since New Year.

Gone Bush & Equinox are 2 members that have V8 toyotas, as well as a number of others. Was a few posts last year that also covered this well. Some mention of oil consumption, or lack of it too.

Bob.

My trayback gets around town figures as published by Toyota (11 to 12 l/100).

Towing my Trakmaster it gets about 19 litres per.

I've found that my figures are virtually identical to a 100 series.

Some pre-emptive info: my trayback and my Trakmaster will both be on the market before the end of Feb. I have ordered a bigger van (Sept delivery) and will be using my 200 series as the tug.

So it's rationalisation time. Some pictures on My Profile, Trader ad in a week or so.

cheers
