    I reckon if you went with a 62 in convoy to the high country tracks , you'd be cherrishing your GU like mother's dearest love ...
    Shopping trolleys with a V8 strapped in. More flex and handling in a garage creeper .

    I hear you mate. I’m in the stage of my life i don’t care about “flex”, I care about comfort and ease, which I know the 62 will do both. Hard core stuff, is not me.

    Honestly don’t know anything really about their high country gnarlier potentials Hodgey Mate but do know this inside myself:
    The more hard earned dollars I’ve worked for to achieve a beautiful ‘shell’ (like my shed queen GU extra cab) the worse of a scaredy-cat driver I become up there.
    Sometimes honestly the best and safest route enroute to the top may well require a stoved panel or two instead of dangerously/financially foolishly avoiding the scratchy stick on the safer side of the mountain if that makes sense?

    Horses for horses I guess for a big car the GQ can squeeze into some pretty tight places with body good vision all round. . GUs definatly feel bigger and 62s are a bloody wide car definatly not suited to flexy pin stripe special tracks . . Think Daz has got the right idea just need one of each . . .

    Last fill before we made the trek home.
    Unladen again, drove a few dirt roads exploring places, no low range, a fair bit of 80-100kph as we decided to go to Beechworth and a few other towns, so mostly easy. 15.5L/ 100.

    Interesting to see the differences in consumption over my trip. First time I’ve ever actually looked at consumption, probably the last too. Haha!!
