    Hi Dalton,

    Bump . . . .

    Been interesting reading through this thread.

    Even though I know you an can take Nissan's claim of fuel consumption of being 11.8L/100klm with a grain of salt for my 3Lt Patrol GU Ute, so I was interested to see how it would go with it's first big trip up to my Father's in far North/West NSW which is 740klm one way, on the main 90Lt tank I got around 630klm before needing to switch across to Sub Tank, a little short of Nissan's 11.8l/100 or 762Klm which Nissan spec's indicates.

    If my calculations are right, I'm getting around 15L/100klm with my 2013 3Lt Ute, reading through this thread the 15L/100 looks about correct from what I'm reading here.

    Yeah, I reckon big stock on an empty belly they might come close to their advertised figures. My 2003 gu td42ti was getting high 13l/100 when I first got it.. Doesn't do that now...

    My 04 GU III td42ti was getting 14.82l/100 before getting it dyno tuned. The next three tanks I put through it were 14.1l/100, 13.31l/100 & 12.59l/100. Those last two I cracked the 600km mark for the 90l tank fill up getting 617kms and 644kms.
    These are a mix of city driving and freeway trips for holidays and a mix of unloaded and loaded with family.

    Over about 100,000K since new I have averaged 11.59LHK. My 'round town' driving is probably around 80% highway. Heavy trips see it up around 15+, but 10-11 around town. I don't have a heavy foot but I do travel at the limit. Standard 2015 GU 3L auto diesel wagon and only tow a box trailer occasionally.
    My old 1956 FJ Holden used to get around 20MPG (14.1LHK), and the 6 cylinder VC Valiant was no better but did have a bigger donk. Both petrol of course when it was around 3s 6d ($0.35) a gallon. And beer was $4.10 a carton of long necks - stubbies were only emerging then. You could buy a beer and a packet of smokes with 10 bob ($1) and get change.

    Good on mate, you're a bloody legend, love it. I can remember when petrol was 35c/litre, maybe even a bit lower, worked at a servo from 14 y.o.

    Haha, beer and smokes for a $buck & change.

    I get about 620kms before the fuel light comes on around town.

    179,000kms, chipit performance chip, stock exhaust. I've only had it for a couple of months. Am guessing it needs an intake clean & better exhaust
    2008 CRD Wagon, 182,000kms and counting....

    Just updated my fuel app last night after this thread popped up. GU TD42 270,000km.

    All time average from May 2018 of just over 17l/h. My last 3 tanks have been at about the 14.5l/h though. That's interesting because I've been doing a lot of towing lately.

    Every day load is rear drawers, tools, roof rack and I run both main and sub tanks from full down to 1/4 in the main each fill.

    My speedo/odo is bang on with actual road speed and kms travelled via gps. My average is coming down slightly since the new pump and turbo. Could be driving technique though, after the first couple of months playing with the new power I think I drive it nicer now than I did when it was a slug.
