Hi all, I thought that I would give a report on using the scangauge in my vehicle for my last trip, there will be 2 reports this one for fuel and next one for auto temps, so details of vehicle and caravan first.
2003 Toyota Landcruiser 100 series V8 petrol 5 speed auto, 285.75.16 BFG AT tyres, has draws loaded and usual other stuff also 50 litres of water behind front seats.
Caravan, Regent Legend 19ft duel axle pop top ATM of 1960 kg I do not over load the van and believe / hope I am a little under this weight.
So to fuel, I will state that as far as possible I stick close to the posted speed limits up 100klm,
I checked with the scangauge at the end of each day and these figures are for towing only, the scangauge is calibrated using GPS, and the fuel amounts have been checked using the GPS and fuel used and found to be as accurate as I can get.

Average towing only, 22.00
Worst 25.00 this was with a very strong head wind and hilly.
Best 19.01

I have posted this just as info, hope it helps. Pete.
