    Those figures are all over the place.

    I drive my 1998 Daihatsu Terios 1.3l permanent 4x4 about twice a year maximum and my average is R1/km. It's actually lower but I factor in a head wind should I be in it. The R1.00 rule just makes it easy for me to calculate how much it is going to cost me (maximum) in fuel when I venture out somewhere.

    Another stoopid article, eish......the figures are from the little sticker on the windscreen......which tells me that my FJ uses 11.4 l/100kms

    10km/l so R1. 50 per km. If a back wind then R0. 15 per km

    I'm not sure what genius decided they would do the difficult maffs in order to explain that if you multiply liters consumed by Randelas that you get the cost.

    And not only that, you actually show that the liter/100km figure has a direct relationship to the cost!?
    Who knew that!

    I can't imagine that you are so out of content ideas that you end up with this. Motor "journalism" has become a pile of 'top ten' lists and fluff pieces where every car wins the so-caled 'shootout' equally.

    It's like private school athletics where everyone gets a medal because they are all winners. I bet this "journalist" that compiled this also got a participation medal. It is no wonder he signed the article as "Staff Writer", I also wouldn't want to admit that this is all I could come up with.

    Mmm. This article does not take resale value, depreciation, parts or service costs, reliability and cost of ownership into account which is the real cost per 100km trip.

    And is posted on our forum and will get argued over for pages and pages because they didn't factor in xyz. Which in itself is a pointless exercise

    Nothing wrong with top ten lists, but for f#^* sakes get it right.......comparing a petrol to a diesel and as I mentioned, using the windscreen stickers data......

    Why would you not compare vehicles, its literally a comparison of options on the market? (petrol or diesel)

    I feel a few people are over sensitive of their brands.

    Mine uses 13,5L/100km and I'm proud of it. Own your consumption like a real man.

    EDIT:
    While it is impossible to accurately track exactly how much petrol you will consume due to factors such as traffic and road quality, it is possible to get a rough estimate of how exactly these petrol prices will impact you current petrol allowance based on manufacturer estimates.

    Ok so this is only taking fuel into account, fine. But I want to know who the hell gets 6.5l/100km on his 2.2 Ranger, 6.3lt/100km on a 2.3 Navara and 8.0l/100km on a 2.8 Hilux??. And the list goes on...

    There is no chance that is even close to accurate under any kind of real life figures

    I recently did a few thousand kilometers in a Renault Sandero, the 900cc 3 cylinder turbo version which is supposedly lights on juice, however I got just over 10l/100km out of it...
    I guess my foot is not the lightest, but there is no way the manufacturers figures are accurate. They should be setting proper parameters for the calculation of these claims, then make the manufacturers comply with it.

    They do the testing down a mineshaft with the wind from behind, hence the fuel consumption, 0-100 and brake distance figures (The latter happens at the end of the mineshaft).

    Or tow it at 80km/h with the engine idling for aircon, brakes, power steering and some of the latest hot hits on the radio... Do that for about 700km, fill up and check.
    You should see around 7.7 l/100km
