Bear in mind that they have a 110Km/h speed limit, from what I gather when reading the Aussie threads

That will make a HUGE difference

Even at 100km / h there's no way i'll get to 6 km/l. I drive a 4.8 and I get 4.8, maybe 5 km/l but no better!!

I am new to 4.8, and my patrol is stock standard, apart from the roof rack. I did get 6 Km/L driving between 120 to 125. But not less than 5.5, even when towing a trailer (Venter off roader).

Never...ever...I managed to get 7km/l..

Rahul
