I've just got myself an 89 GQ patrol on dual fuel, and love it! me and a few mates are taking it down the south coast to Bendalong - near ulladulla - and we intend to take in some of the bush scenery while we're down there.

We visited Pigeonhouse Mountain and climbed it last time we were down a year ago and absolutely loved it - except all the roads out there were disappointingly good and I didn't get a chance to challenge the 4x4 (at the time my fathers Land Rover Defender). All the roads we saw were good enough to take any sedan along.

If anyone here has done much 4wding in the south coast region to places suitable for a picnic I'd love to hear from you.

As an aside: The patrol is great, on a trip it costs me $9 per 100km (not towing, and on lpg) when gas is about 45c/l but the downside is that I only get 280km at best out of a tank of lpg. If anyone has figures similar or better or worse please feel free to let me know.

10 Para, the deal is I don't know how big the tank is, but the tank has never taken more than 75L of gas to fill, and that was when it started to run as if it was low on fuel (like loss of power etc). It is mounted under the rear, between the diff and the towbar... I think thats where most of them are mounted on Patrols.

Sorry Bob forgot the HF we managed to get a bracket from ARB think it was a Kayman and had it powered coated to match them attached it to the swing arm that holds the spare wheel and it sits good there, they tell me that you cant mount them on the bull anymore anyway its great where it is.
