So after getting 16.8 ltrs to 100 with the BT-50, I am looking at a 2009 GU, 950000 for $33k.
I've been lurking, and the quality of this place has gone down. Not saying it's because I went to a BT-50 but it is a strange coincidence!!! :p

Probably was. He thinks this place has gone down hill and he doesn't want to follow even if he's driving lol.

Ah so I see you are not familiar with sarcasm! Sorry, I'll refrain from using it around you if that makes it easier for you. ;-)

950,000ks..

The main benefit of moving from a bt50 to a trol is that you won't have to vomit when you see the ugly front of your own car anymore.

What sort of driving was that, heavy towing?, obviously not just going to the shops or highway cruising, lots of low range boot to the wall 4x4ing? Have to be loading it up a fair bit and putting the boot in to go through that much fuel, work ute with a ton of tools in the back?? DP chip switched to 9?

That's getting close to my 4.2 all loaded up and dragging a 2 ton van around...

Dunno about that mate, but I am feeling like taking out my new compound bow for some goat hunting in the weekend. I'll give you a head start!

my current shape which is 2012 onwards, 3.2l 5cyl with the 6 speed auto does 9l/100km.
with my 1200kg boat/trailer/motor weight on thr back, sitting on 108 on the GPS returns about 12-13l/100km.


i think the biggest issue with the 3l 4cyl bt50/ranger was they where a wanna be landcruiser and are 4h ALL the time. you needed to turn of 4h and be in just 2wd, but to do this would always show you an indication light on the dash. which i guess made people think that, normal driving you shouldnt have dash lights illuminating, so no one turns it off. and being in 4h ALL the time = high fuel consumption.

I have a couple of friends with them one a single cab with tool boxes loaded on the back and the other a ranger and they return really reasonable figures. Ranger about 9s and the bt 11s and is pretty heavy.

Mine is manual select 4wd, so it is always in 2nd. I know the newer ones get heaps better economy. I had a mate that had a ford the same model as mine that was not much better fuel, so it's a common thing with the older ones.
