    TD42 was using ~20L per 100k.

    Replaced air filter but it wasn't bad other than the fact that there had been some dust getting past the foam seals between the filter and the DTS air box. Unfortunately DTS doesn't sell replacements just wants $350 or suggested some weather stripping but I would rather not risk a gap where the ends meet so ordered a Radius air box.
    Put some injector cleaner in the tank and two cans of Liqui-Moly Resealer Engine Oil Treatment in just to see if it actually works.

    replaced the fuel filter, this had some large lumps of gunk around the water sensor so I am guessing this was the problem.
    Had a little helper jump in when they noticed my arms about to fall off trying to remove the fuel filter. Unfortunately it was just good for a laugh.

    Fuel consumption returned to ~12L per 100k for almost two tanks but after 1200k fuel usage went back up using half a tank to go 200k so I am guessing as the tank got low it sucked up some more crap.

    Tested the head and rewired the trailer sockets to suit the pop top.
    My advice is: not to follow my advice.

    Took it over the scales.
    2960kg with about 100 litres of fuel, myself and the old battery that was taking to the tip. My gvm plate states 2960kg as well. Would hate the think what I'm at with 220 litres of fuel and camping gear... Shit even without the camping gear and the main tank full I'll be over.

    C'mon mate how can that be? What's adding all that invisible weight? Larger tyre/rim combo than factory? Roof rack? Drawers? Fridge? Dual batteries? Winch? Bullbar? Amazingly huge knackers?? Gotta be more breathing room than what you've indicated surely.

    I remember when I took my Patrol for the Engineers certificate, the engineer said Patrols and Landcruisers were so close to their GVM from factory, with a car full of the allow passengers and the tanks full its on or over their gvm. Mine only passed because I didn't fill my tanks and it went of a massive diet pre inspection.

    Off the top of my head I thought there was approx 400kg to play with. JC said just him and a battery on board. Something's not right.

    The only things that you didn't mention are fridge cage and drop down slide and scrub bars and sliders.

    I'll gone to the tip with a trailer full of crap and have been over 3300 kg

    Really doesn't take that much Plassie if you think about it. I was surprised my self when I went over the scale. Bullbar, winch, alloy roof rack, 33" steelies and tyres x 5, and draws (roughly80kg). Both tanks full and me in the seat, I was roughly one adult away from gvm. Add some camping gear, beer and it's game over.
    That 400kg play is eaten up quick by accessories, which on a STOCK car would be eaten up by passengers.
    I've since ditched the draws and a heavy AGM. Gained a lithium battery at rear. But also added a rear bar with swing aways. So Don't know where it's at now.

    Most GU's run similar setups more or less and as i said above I reckon most would be close if not over in "camping" mode.
