    The V6 also gives me 3.5 km/l in heavy sand!

    Before I fitted a bull bar and winch it gives me nearly 6.5 kml/l, now barely 5.5km/l . I do have an app on my phone to record fuel consumption, but thats about only for record purposes. Have learned over the years you fill it up and drive it no matter how much goes into the tank.

    But I must say I always use a more economical vehicle for running around, which is quit a number of kilos per year, and keep the cruisers for the heavier stuff.

    LC v6 average consumption for 27000 km =5.8km/l. That isdriving dunes, rivers, general gravel, flooring it on tar (140+). Not too bad. At least it goes anywhere I want it to.

    Yes, little to harm to the planet.. until its time to dispose off the millions of spent batteries once the entire planet goes EV...
