It Is odd. I expected at least 30 l/km. It must be the uphill-downhill combo.The F250 was not intended as competition, it was thrown in for interest sake.
Not only did the Patrol use less fuel than the 'Cruiser but petrol is cheaper than diesel.
Seriouslythe wind makes a big difference when towing tall caravans. since both were tested on different date. look at the 2nd video at the end, you can see it was a pretty windy day. dont know which direction of the wind. i think the result is not accurate unless compare them on the same day/ time.
Quite true but wind makes most difference at highway speeds and looking at the film clip of the 200 it seemed pretty windy at the top of the mountain where they would only be doing low speeds, and pretty calm while they were filling up in Bright at the bottom of the mountain. Bright to Harrietville has good opportunity to do 80-100k but up the mountain from Harrietville to Hotham won't see them doing much more than 50 and often a lot less.. What they lose with the wind in one direction they will also pick up in the other.the wind makes a big difference when towing tall caravans.
Good point. I hadn't realised they were using U98.I don't think I have ever seen 98 cheaper than diesel
That's a matter of taste. To me the cruiser has been jellymold and ugly since the 80 series and each one since looks worse.I was planning to buy a land cruiser before I did my convention, but the dpf and injector issues stopped me. I don't mind a petrol V8, but the style of y62 .......if make a choice today, I would still pickup the cruiser. Sometimes, the style is more important than mechanical spec. Take a look at the sales results between the bt50 and the Ranger.....
