Drive.com.au states 13L/100km (manual transmission) in the city but doesn't have a figure for highway

With no weight or roofracks 12-13l/100ks city AND highway, some have said 10/11's but I can't.
Loaded to the hilt, 15's/100ks, once pushed past 100 - 110, expect it to rise, they don't like speed, putt-ing around in traffic and in the bush is their domain.
They are not the most effeceient nor powerfull (in case you hadn't noticed) but very reliable.
Fuel light usually comes on at around 78-80 liters (mian, 90l) and 40 (sub, 45l) combining to give around 15 liters reserve.
For me, just running around to and from work, mostly 70-80 with a few lights and roundabouts, plus a bit of a jog an a freeway on the week end,generally gets me over 900 ks to both tanks.
In '07, I went from Brisbane to; Birdsville Alice springs via Simpson desert, Kalgorlie, Ceduna, Port lincon, Victorian High country, TOTAL trip average was between 14.5 and 15l/100ks, with roofrack and around 300 kg over the vehicles max allowable weight.

I sat on 95 kph with a camper trailer and roof rack in through the centre 18 months ago, I got 900 km from the 2 tanks, there is not a hope in hell you will get 1200 km from 2 tanks.

Cheers Steve.

When I first got my 105 its average around town was 11.5l/100km and about 11l/100 on the higway travelling at 100-105km. The car was stock standard with only a alloy bullbar and highway tyres. Since then I have added dual batteries, rear storage draws, full length roof rack and LT tyres and now its averaging 12.5-13l/100km. Hope it helps.

Yep, it's the factory light for the immobiliser/anti theft.

There is a transponder chip for the engine immobiliser in the head of the master and sub keys ( Master key - black head, Sub key - grey head). The immobiliser is activated/deacticated when the key comes into contact with the ignition barrel.

If yours is standard wagon then we have the same car even the build dates are the same.
I've had mine for 15 months and just put new injectors in her and have just got 922 kms from two full tanks including Canberra- Syd return but virtually unloaded. interestingly I could only get 135lts back in to it on the first bowser click plus a bit more after having had both fuel warning lights on for both tanks. I drove on the mains for 40 kms after light came on and about the same on the second tank. I did not think I was going to get to my servo before running out but it seems I had 10 lts to spare.
