I'm thinking of buying a new Rodeo and wanted to know if any one has had any experience with the new diesel. I was going for the 3.5 L petrol but the fuel figures look terrible.

Yeah I heard the v6 guzzles juice, I have 02 d/cab 3l diesel and consistently achieve 550km to 50l of fuel on city/highway driving.

The 3.0L diesel is a very good choice, now onto my second diesel Rodeo, I would never go near a petrol again.
My Rodeo is 3.0L man 4X4 space cab pick up LX. Fuel consumption around town last time I checked was 8.5 litres / 100 km, a combination of mainly 60 km/h, 70, 80, 90, 100km/h speed limits. Highway driving at 100-110 km/h I was also getting in the low 9's for 100km. Very frugal on juice.
In May I drove over to Melbourne from Adelaide to get the hard lid fitted. I got to Ballarat and only put in 58 litres, fantastic.

The Holden dealer in Adelaide told me that the difference between the two was minimal. He quoted that over 10,000 km it added up to $400. I drove a diesel the other day but they are hard to get. I'll wait for one.
Thanks for the input, it's much better to get it from the horses mouth than the chaff bag. I had the 97 diesel and that was great.

I have covered 35000km in the new RA Rodeo now. It's the 3ltr ITD Dual Cab. I got it the last week of March this year. I was a bit disappointed to start with re fuel eccon. but it has all of a sudden getting 10km/l highway Dalby to Mullumbimbi rtn. from 8km/l. If it behaves as well as my Jackaroo, 4.5 yrs old with 320000km and the 2 rodeos before I'll be happy. I had a 3.2 V6 but had trouble paying western fuel prices but a great driving ute!
