See trek pages here for Simpson crossing info including fuel usage - and mixed case text is the go (all caps being far too loud :-o)

Tom fuel consumption with petrols can vary by up to 30% depending on weight carried, tyre pressure, driving styles & sand condition. That's why you'll see a large variation in the Trek Fuel section. For a crossing when the sand is easy expect to use around 130 litres (depending on route) but I'd carry 200.

On a side note be a little wary of the fuel usage quoted in Trek Fuel as the data is getting pretty old & conditions in the desert have changed considerably since then. Possibly something the ExOz management may encourage members to update.
Cheers Craig.............

Have crossed twice in a 3.5 V6 fully loaded with 4 people in the car.

550km...120L Mt. Dare - Birdsville... French line/QAA.
710km...160L Birdsville - Mt Dare...QAA/french/WAARig rd.
Both trips carried 190L.
