    Re: Fuel Consumption of your Towing Combination

    With the Cruiser, around 5,5km/l but goes down to 4km/l when leaving the blackstuff and engaging 4x4.

    Fortuner, 7,8km/l, haven't done any off road towing with it yet.

    Re: What Fortuner to Get

    I'd say that the 2.8 4x4 is the way to go. I have a 76 Series V8 Land Cruiser that's pretty much sitting in the garage since I bought the Fortuner at the begining of this year.
