 Is that with any weight on the vehicles or towing?

 Interesting that the BT50 (Ranger) 3.2L is more economical than the 2.2L model

 Are all the vehicles driven by all the drivers or does each driver have their assigned car?

 Possibly quite irrelevant - but my 1988 hj61 5 speed manual Landcruiser sits somewhere in the middle at about 10.5 L/100 with 562000kms on it and about 12- 16L/100 towing the boat depending on load / wind / temperature / speed... and it doesn’t matter if I scratch the shit out of it on tight tracks...

Tue, 2018-07-10 08:19

I have a 2010 D40 Navara St and towing a full caravan and roof rack up to Coral Bay, we were doing 18.5's to 19's. That hurt.

Back in town, I was getting around 13 l/100 with roof racks on, but since I have taken them off, ~11.8.

I previously I had a 88 SWB patrol that would get 10 l/100 regardless of how you drove and what you dragged behind you.

 hey is you d40 a manual or auto? before I bought mine it was a toss up between man and auto ....Man had shit duel mass FW ....who knew auto would be even worse  I had the STX but sold it due to poor towing capabilities.  auto only locking torque con in 5th ....pffft what an engineering fail !!  I was getting 18-19 towing 2 tons ish and most of that was 80-90kmph (if that at times) ...the gear box would hunt for a right gear.  
 

Colorado now does same load at 100kmph very easily .....13-14lph.

Mine is Manual and it is a pig where there are hills. Coming back from Esperance at Christmas, I was stuck in 2nd getting out of Ravensthorpe until I got to some flattish ground where I could get some speed up.

Coming through Northampton, I was the bloke with his foot to the floor doing 70 at the top of a hill before thanking baby Jesus for gravity once on the other side.

It is a good city drive fully loaded towing 1.6t, it doesn't cut it in my opinion.

Tue, 2018-07-10 12:54

yep I agree was great when not towing but big PITA with anything over about 1 ton (empty horse float just OK)  I had mine for one trip to Kalbarri with the boat.........what a nightmare drive...... sold it within weeks of getting back.  bought the RG Colorado and couldn't be happier.  

Of course Im comparing an older car with a brand new one but imagine haveing 3.5 T on the back of a navara.  (LOL Baby Jesus powers needed) !!

I have driven a Colorado

Tue, 2018-07-10 15:01

I have driven a Colorado around in recent weeks and where compared to my Navara, there is plenty of power though it is an auto. Sits on around 9l just around town. Cannot get used to the view from the bonnet though. My Navara has plenty of bar work and you cannot see any of it from the drivers seat where the Colorado has similar bar work and it sits out like bull dog nuts. I guess you just get used to one thing.

We're going to need to spend some money replacing cars in the not too distant future!

We have two electric cars and they are a bit of fun , until you put your foot down. In my car, if you put your foot down with 550km range, you still get 548km. In the electric car, if you dump your foot on the go button on the freeway, you go from 100km range to 85 range in around 8 seconds.
