Beste wat ek ooit gekry het met my kar is 4.4kmpl, 35s, beadlocks, roofrack en 80, 100, 130 kmph.
Bo 130 gps kry ek tussen 3-3.5kmpl.
Steeds goed dink ek, besig met gearing nou om 37s te maak pas!

Iesh and 90km/h indicated is closer to 80 in real life. This is a good 40% slower than you go somewhere legally. Why? :think: No excuse unless there were land rovers in the group.

Does not seem to be a 4.5 specific fuel consumption thread, so will post here:

On my recent trip from Sabie to Pta/JHb and back (returned today):

Got the best consumption ever on this vehicle: 6km/l - Best I ever got. :thumbup:

Only factors I think worth mentioning:
Roof rack was removed.
Dunlop grandtrek mt2's on patrol, 255/85r16, 2.5bar. (previously cooper st maxxs was on this patrol)
I would think that mud terrains in general are heavier on fuel, but maybe the thinner profile and lack of "side/corner threads" on the Dunlops (compared to the coopers), makes it less wind resistant or less rolling resistance(?).. not really sure :think: The Dunlops also got less rubber on the tar than the coopers.
Most travelling speed was closer to 110km/hr, some stretches on N4 was closer to 130km/hr.

Measured the traveled distance on the GPS and compared to the ODO - 10% differenc there.
