A friend of mine has a 2002 model. He's getting around 15l/100k's around town. Towing is touching on 20l/100k's. Not oily rag stuff by a long way. My new Navara is just as bad er I mean good??

Hi Dave,

I don't what the fuel consumption should be, however , I might be able to help you reduce it like many others are doing. Read my "Press Release" on Bi-tron. E-mail me.

I have a 98 challenger which I'm pretty sure has the same 3L petrol V6. I get almost spot on 11.6 l/100k's every tank. Probably 60/40 highway/round town. Triton may have different gearing being a work truck, not sure. If you do a search on challenger you will find other peoples figures. Generally seems to be 10-11 l/100k's highway, 12-13 round town. It's one of the most economical petrol v6's.

David,

We get 10.7l/100km when on the highway which drops to 13l/100km in city traffic. "Live today as if there may be no tomorrow"

We have the standard 75 litre tank but are about to upgrade it to a LR 14o litre for towing the camper. The gearboxes in the Triton seem to be rock solid - this is our second Triton and not a problem with either of them. BTW the thrust bearings on every Triton I've ever seen are noisy."Live today as if there may be no tomorrow"

Consumption blows out to about 19l/100km when we're towing though."Live today as if there may be no tomorrow"
