fuel consumption for petrol 100 ser 4.5lt on canning

G,Day travellers.

will be taking on the CSR in september 2011 and was wondering if anyone that has traversed it recently in same type vehicle / engine, could advise what their fuel consumption was like. I have 270lts on board and was taking 2 x Jerry cans, figuring it would get me from Halls creek to well 33 where a resupply of same amount would get from there to Wiluna, I note in EO trek fuel the highest rate was 538lts for 2300 klms @ 23.36 per 100k is this accurate?(if so 2 jerrys might be a bit skinny)
have also fitted OME sport nitro shocks, any feedback from people with them fitted would be appreciated

cheers and safe travels

Did it with my similar 4800 petrol patrol using just over 18lt / 100km and V8 diesel troppy with me used 14.5

Used fuel dump - was cheaper than well 33 , but didn't need it.

Total fuel use 369 lt (Wiluna to Halls creek)

Note - as per recent post auto's use more - I took my manual 4800.

Canning is generally pretty easy going , its the corro's that get you.

Thanks Robin, yeah mines an auto, so 23 / 100 is in the paddock (get 20 / 100 highway) considering upgrading exhaust with pacemaker extractors and straight through system, I am told that this will give increased fuel economy too, Not looking forward to the corro's but you have to take it as it comes

Completed the CSR June 2011 in a 4.5L petrol manual 80 series landcruiser. Used ~460L over ~2200km with economy of ~21L/100km from Wiluna to Halls Creek. Also I was using OME sport nitro shocks no problems, took it pretty easy with 18 PSI in the tyres the entire length, which helped, they did get too hot to touch over corrogations though. I would expect 270L would be plenty with fueling at well 33, however depends on your side trips. We did all wells/waterholes on our maps also diebel hills and warrabuda soak.

thanks for response 80cruiser, we haven't planned too many side trips apart from visiting all wells and Durba Springs, but i'll still take the 2 jerrys for peace of mind, glad the shockers held up ok, will certainly reduce tyre pressure to suit conditions.

Im planning to do Halls Creek starting about 21 Sept 2011 so maybe meet you on tract.

I have an ex Britz Rental Troopie Camper, 4.2 diesel and have done all the Len Beadel tracks at average of 14 li/100 km.

The two tanks onboard hold 180 Litres but for this run Im going to carry a couple of 20Lli cans just to feel comfortable.

Jst have standard shocks, my teeth rattle but the troopie holds up.

Cheers R
