    Default Less than that.

    Hi

    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.

    On trip down to Natal in 2 Fortuners (One diesel, one petrol) we filled up at Villiers and again in Ballito.

    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.

    Cheers

    Default Fuel consumption

    I get around 7.2km/l around town mostly short trips.
    As a pensioner there is no peak hour commuting.

    Hey Slim

    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.
    Cheers

    Hi Guys,

    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.

    On my v6 Auto Tuna I get in town around 6.5km/l, but then I drive quite heavy footed.

    On the open road, I get around 8km/l. My onboard computer which I zero'ed about a year ago says 7.8km/l...

    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.

    If you increase the tyre size you will actually "slow" you speedo down and will get a lower odo reading and as a result your fuel consumption calcs will actually show an increase in fuel consumption. Less distance travelled per tank as a result of the "decrease in speed" if you will.

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

    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.

    all these numbers will not help at all if you keep driving like an old tannie...

    Why drive normally when on your own, and then push 150 loaded with the family and lighty??
