Slim, where did you buy/fit the long range tank?
the vehicle i bought came with it , but i will find out and reply
I dont think you will get 8-9km/l.
Good driving 7,5 km/l. In thick sand/dunes 3.5- 4.5 km/l.
Enjoy the V6.

Looking at purchasing a 4.0l tuna so reviving this old post. Anyone with similar vehicles wish to throw some figures out there?

My D4D managed 11km/lt and my friends 4.0lt petrol 8km/lt (Both manual 4x4's, 4 people and luggage) We spend most of the journey on the wrong side of the legal limit.

I get around 7.2km/l around town mostly short trips.
As a pensioner there is no peak hour commuting.
I'm driving my third 4.0 V6 from Toyota now, and if I got these figures the guys are writing of, I would be over the moon. My first was a 120 Prado, and it gave me an average of 6k's to the litre combined driving. The best consumption with that car however was 10.2km/l, but it was purely a test. My second is a 4.0 4x4 Hilux auto and I still have it. This one has a fuel capacity of 150 litres, and gives me an average of 5km/l. It does though have a couple of minor mods, witch I believe has an influence on the consumption. The latest edition is a 150 Prado 4.0 V6. My average on this one is 5.5km/l combined driving. So yeah, no consumption to get excited by but, (and here is the reason for 3 V6's) the power delivery is awesome. I am now towing an Explorer caravan with the Prado, and my consumption with the 1.6T caravan goes down to only 5km/l. That is at a speed not more than 120km/h. Hope I could help a little.

Driving a 4.0L Hilux Auto I have read these threads with interest and also a bit of doubt. I do not know how you can get 7-8 km/l in this truck.
One thing is sure though, the consumption is fairly consistent, that is if you do not go over 160 or do sand work. I get 6 - 6,5 km/l in town or highway. No mods except steel canopy.
As Troopy mentioned, you get accustomed to the power and even heavily loaded or towing the consumption stays around 5-6. Work on that. Anything better is a bonus.
Same here, Town driving 6-6.8km/l Highway 120km/h with cruse control 8.3km/l.
I have tested another Hilux before I bought this one. I made a deal with the dealer to loan me the Hilux for a week to test the consumption on open raod and town driving. I got 7.2km/l on town driving and 8.8km/l on the open road. But I dont get those figures with the one I end up buying. One of the guy's at work says he gets 9.9km/l on the open road. I dont know. sounds like a vis vang storie. But then it must also be taken into consideration that the speedo was not re calibrated from the 15" wheels to the 16" wheels, I don't know how much of a difference that makes, but I do think that it contributes to a "better" consumption.
The Hilux I tested was white, the guy at work also have a white one. It could that it is only the white ones that gives that excellent consumption.

Got to agree with troopy. anything between 5-6km/l depending on how you drive and mods

'15 Toyota Hilux 3.0D4D
120km / hr on the speedo and I get 8.5km / l. (Empty and no trailer)
This drops to 6.3 km / l at around 150km/hr (with family of 4.5 and a loaded luggage trailer)
Town driving is also sub 7 km / hr.
You know what you do when you make assumptions Peter.
Full car and full luggage trailer. Set the cruise control at 125km/hr (on the speedo).
7km / l.
