Hello,

That's a great write up! You have done well with trip prep and planning. So you gus had 60lt left?

The 100 is good on fuel. We just completed a east west of the Simpson in our 200 towing the tvan. We were 29lt per 100 Birdsville to Mt dare. In low range for the whole trip and tyres down to 10 psi. We idled up the dunes at 1200-1400 rpm with no troubles and no wheel spin.

Interesting to not a friend on the trip in a manual dual cab was 21 lt per 100. You guys have managed to be lower and towing. I would need 380lt to do the same trip in the 200 Hahaha

We had seen plenty of people not towing havering a few goes at dunes and struglingwith tyres at 35psi and some prompt on CH 10 they made it in 2WD.

Good work!

Gotta feed the horses in the mightly V8 hey!..great car, regardless of fuel consumption some times. My brother has had very good milage from his 2015 TDA GXL, when towing his TVan.

Hi Mick. The manual Patrol was also towing their TVan, which was our trip over the whole Madigan.
750kms in total from Mt Dare to Birdsville. it was a great trip too!
