    Have you done a chip tune? If not, get one.

    The snorkel will reduce your fuel economy. They are hugely restrictive compared to factory. This is why a post snorkel tune is important.

    As said previously, if your tyre size has increased, that will hurt as well, not only in increasing your engine load, but your speedo will be under reading, so you need to take that into account in your calculated economy (eg, its easy to go up 8% in rolling tyre size which means that you are getting 8% more miles than reads on your speedo so you need to add that extra unseen distance to your equation). Most new vehicles are under reading on their speedos from the factory, which helps their published economy figures.

    I've been watching this thread with interest as I have a 2019 Toyota Tacoma which is the Hilux equivalent on this side of the world. From the start I have been disappointed with the fuel consumption, I had a full size Ford F-150 with the 3.7L six and got way better fuel consumption than my 3.5L Toyota. I love the Tacoma size wise but fuel wise not so much. Most of the time it gets 12 to 14 l/100km which I consider poor and worse in the winter !6 l/100 pretty common. If I want better numbers I can't drive above 100 km/hr. It was interesting to read that I'm not alone.

    I have increased tyre size from factory 30.5” (265x65r17) to 31.5” (265x70r17). I ran a speedo test and it is spot on with the larger diameter tyre.

    I have been wondering if a tune is the solution but i’m pretty sure I can’t if i want to keep the vehicle warranty.

    I did wonder if that was right XR.
    I usually work out miles per gallon and liters per hundred km is something I have trouble getting my head around.
    The cruiser figures work out at 24 mpg.
    I also have a petrol F150 which does 18 mpg empty and gets down to about 10 mpg hauling a big load.
    Haven't towed anything big with the cruiser yet

    I've done 28,000 km's in my 2020 hilux and getting 11L/100km country driving. That's loaded with hunting gear but no bull bar or snorkel.

    Given what the specifications say you should get and the amount of money you spend to get the vehicle with a certain expectation, I would expect better then that personally. Shit in my mind any plain new hilux with no mods should be running below 10L per 100 easy..

    Have two 4wd d/cab sr5 hilux here had since new

    Totally factory with MAF and TPS cleaned every year (did a thread on here)

    2010 gets 7 litres per 100 km

    2015 gets 7.7 litres per 100 km

    All the extra weight and air resistance on pimped vehicles will cost you


    I’m using a brand new bi turbo ranger as a hunting hack and it gets driven extremely hard, it’s using 9.6 litres per 100 km

    You dont have to increase radius of your tyer size very much and it can make a difference.Years ago i put 285/75/16 on the patrol,well i could only get about 420ks per tank compared to 650ks with 70 series tyers.I couldnt wear these tyers out fast enough,but they were coopers 100000ks i got out of them.Changing the turning circle of yr tyer,even small,makes a difference.

    changing tread type makes a difference too...anyone who rides mountainbikes will know how easy they are to ride with a set of town shoes on,road slicks Vs grunty wide grippy tyres.
    the makes specs MIGHT be done with road tread tyres of slightly taller and narrower spec???? hmmm food for though for my next set of tyres,if we ever wear this set out,cripes they are lasting well.

    My 2021 Hilux (auto, SR5 Cruiser) is mid 9s open road, late 10s around town - nudge bar, hard lid and off-road tires. My 2016 was similar.

    Might be worth asking the dealer if they will tune etc, mate had this done on his dmax (probably 3 years ago now) from new and retained the factory warranty (unsure if the dealer did it or outsourced the work)
