    Re: fuel consumption on Toyota Landcruiser V8 diesel

    You can work with 6km a liter

    If you drive more than 120km/h it will fall below that.
    If you drive 105 km/h you will get 8 km/liter

    The reason I got a 76 and not a Fortuner was that there is space in the wheel arch for larger tires. Thats also the reason I got the lift. I got 315/75/16 on.
