    No idea how I did it. Light came on at 517.6kms.

    Which when taking the tire size into equation = 19.21mpg.

    So another 700lbs over mine. That'd probably do it.

    No clue what to tell you. My rev points are at 2300-2500 RPM. Unless I'm merging on the highway. Then it's 3500+

    I get between 14 and 19 L/100 km. I do a lot of towing, off-road, or highway driving. Almost no city. It's really hard for me to compare b/c my driving is so varied. the odometer usually hits 400 km though. One tank will last me 3 month or more, and I'll do a little bit of every style of driving.

    Interested in knowing what other people get. I started using 91 in the tank.

    **EDIT, I run 265/75/17, stock was 245/75/16 (i think)

    It's the standard unit of measure for measuring fuel consumption in SI units. you would think it's km/L but it's not.

    The great Oz doesn't know something? or did I miss the sarcasm ;)?
