    New Hilux Fuel Consumption

    After 9 months of waiting we finally got our new hilux a week and a half ago. Really loving everything about the vehicle so far except one thing, at 1000km on the clock she is drinking 13L per 100km with no load and doing mostly open driving with some short town transits. Automatic transmission.

    As seen in the photo it has a bit of extra weight: Bullbar, winch, snorkel, under vehicle protection, steel side steps, canopy, old man emu suspension upgrade/lift, maxxis razr AT811 265x70r17 tyres (40 PSI front, 38 PSI rear), etc.

    Based on the mods above I knew it would drink more then normal but when the specs say 7L highway, 9.4L city and a combined average of 7.9L, I thought it was reasonable to expect something along the lines of 11L per 100 for my setup. I get those figures are almost always ambitious but my Holden ran at 9.5L with M/T tyres in the same size and a canopy and snorkel on it..

    So there lies my question to any other newer model hilux users, how is your consumption and did it improve much as it ticked up some km and broke in?

    Get the Toyota guys to check injectors at first service sounds like it's running like my old one. Easy fix with Toyota techs.

    With that gear on thatís pretty normal. Might get a bit better. At least 6 of my mates are running 2016+ hiluxs on farms down here and they all comment on the fuel consumption. My 200 series uses not much more than a new ute, and people always comment on how much I must like buying fuel

    Lot of xrta weight there,winch and bull bars.My old patrol with what you got on there,weighs 3 ton.Get around 13/14 litrs/100k if im nice to it.One day i travelled from TeAnu to Chch on a full tank.Used 92litres=630ks.Tank holds 95litres.
    My son n law picked up his new hilux few weeks ago,he s a diesel machanic so it will be interesting how his hilux goes on fuel.He just built a new deck on it with large tool boxs bolted on for his work.Took it for its first long trip last week.Demisters on wing mirrows wouldnt work on its first icey trip.Truck only done about 600ks now.Very nice truck tho,but it wont stay clean long being a roveing diesel mechanic in muddy old Southland.

    I’m not surprised at your numbers.

    It’s in line with what I’ve seen with this model Hilux with all the fruit.

    There’s a lot to be said for driving style when it comes to heavy utes. I have a Scangauge II on my Hilux and I have one of the variables set to LOD, which is engine load. It is really interesting to watch how that varies with slight changes of right foot pressure at certain speeds in certain gears. You learn to lift and coast relatively easily and it makes a big difference to fuel consumption.

    The other thing to consider is have you change the tyre overall diameter? Is it a taller tyre?

    I don’t really trust the on-board computer for fuel consumption and have found that the calibrated Scangauge is spot on, And always lower than what it says on the cars computer.
    Just...say...the...word

    My brother just bought a 2021hilux xtracab 4x4 with 10k on the clock.
    On his way back he was getting 10.3 after a couple of hundy k and getting home.
    He rang me the next day, do you want to hear a funny story?
    Yep I said.
    Turns out he was used to his old hilux gearbox and driven all the way back in 5th as didn't realize the fucker is a 6 speed!
    True story.
    Very nice rig though.

    I'm running a 4.5 litre flat deck cruiser and got 780km for 95 litres on the last tank. By my calculations that's a bit over 8 litres /100 km. About 200 km of that was towing about a tonne.
    Quite happy with that. Although I only drive at about 90 km/hour normally.

    Itís a manual so maybe better economy

    Might have to do the math again there 7mm, that looks to me to be 11-12L/100km. Your calc may have put the wrong figure over the top of the other wrong figure

    I think Trout, myself et al running 30 year old pushrod turbo diesel 4x4s getting 10L/100km are having to wipe the smiles off our faces about now
