  6. Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    Hi, Just wondering what the average fuel consumption is for a TB42 patrol running on LPG? I am currently getting about 33l/100km around town, which I deem to be excessive. I have a SWB with a roof rack only 25mm from the top of the roof, and no load in the back. I don't consider myself to have...
