    Do 130-140kph and that should come down to about 10

    This one looks absolutely spot on...

    This is believable

    Stay within the torque band and your fuel consumption will be around 9-10km/l.
    The secret is to not exceed the rpm of the torque band as there is really no gain except more fuel being used...1400-2500 rpm is ideal. Change gears when you reach 2500 and don not fall below 1400rpm whilst driving in any gear.

    Agree, this makes a big difference!
    I only managed to do just over 100kms over the weekend on open road, kept to the speedlimit and in cruise control. the consumption was 10.5 km/l. I suspect to total average on the tank will remain around 8.5 though.

    Sure this does help, but......
    My first FT was a 2006 and I got 10.5 km/l easy all the time except for towing.
    Got a 2010 now, driving style the same but only get 8.5 km/l now.
    Other difference is a ARB bumper and roofrack.
    This is all calculated myself, computer shows 10.2km/l.

    koop die v6, hy gee 9km/l

    Seriously. As jy n diesel trap suip hy. 6.5 sleep. 8 dorp en 9 oop pad is aanvaarbaar. Maar hel ek vestaan gladnie die verskil in brandstof verbruik nie. Ek ry rustig, maar vrek nie as ek bestuur nie. Wil graag saam die manne ry wat sulke goeie verbruik kry.
