    Obviously this all depends on the state of the engine, driver & the mechanics who works on the vehicle.

    you still got this vehicle? interested in selling it?

    Leon, I never drove at 90 on an open road, I've found that whether on open or urban cycle the 280 never deviated much. My highway speed was always 130 Speedo, sometimes 140, always had a nearly full load due to all the tools I carry around. This past September I took visitors to KNP using the 280 with load, the fuel consumption was the same. When Speedo indicates 130, gps is 120, I'm running on 265/75/15 tyres.

    The average fuel consumption was 10.5 to 11.0km/lit. I used to fill about 80 to 83 lit diesel & drive for about 700km before the light flickered on for the first time, then I drive for another 200 odd km before I begin to really worry. 950km & my bakkie would be running on fumes, I'd really be looking to get stuck after that. The most I ever managed to fill was 85 lit at the pump, then the bakkie was jerking up to the pump.

    I don't believe in the myth of sucking up all the dirt from the bottom of the tank when running it so low on fuel. The supply pipe is always sucking from the bottom of the tank anyway, there just might be a higher concentration of dirt nearing empty.

    BTW. I always have a spare 5 litre can of diesel in the back of the van in case I can't make it to the nearest diesel depot.

    When I was running the 250 comp motor, I was getting to 1080km before the tank ran dry.

    hi bunchat. thanks, thats light, and some excellent range. one may then assume that at 80 - 90 kph one may get 12-13km/l.

    About right I would say. I get similar with 4X4, roof racks and a heavy foot.

    Ek het n 2006 Isuzu kb 300 lx d/c,gekoop met 84000km en staan nou amper 4 jaar later op 125000km.Ek het gevind dat as ek vol maak as die diesel lig aan kom hy so tussen 55 en 60 liter vat.Almal met wie ek gepraat het se dieselfde,ek het al by die 200km gery met die lig aan. My brandstof verbruik teen 120km/h wissel tussen 11 en 11.5km/l met canopy op(sonder het ek 12km/l gekry).Teen 115km/h kry ek so 12.5km/l + op die oop pad.In die dorp kry ek so 10.5 tot 11km/l.Hang af van hoe swaar jou voet is.

    diesel Flubber? of petrol?

    ek neem aan diesel. sien 12.5km/l teen 115 kan ek mee leef. dis 1000km op die tenk (80 lieter). dan sal ek die diesel koop. wat ek oor worry is ouens wat se hul ry saggies en kry minder as 10.....

    Hi JPD

    Het jy vir my enige meer inligting hier oor asb?

    Dankie Ruan

    There is a way to get more fuel in with small modification to the tank. The breather pipe sits quite low in the tank, so all you do is fit a new breather pipe on top of the tank. You can then fill up with around 20-30lts more.
