    Hi. My suburb driving fuel use is 10.5 to 12 lts p/100 kilometers. This is good for me, as I can't go far without coming to a stop sign, slowing for a round-about or stopping at traffic lights etc. Not knowing your driving habits or if its all city, suburb driving or a mix, its hard to tell, but I think you should be able to get a bit more out of the tank. Remember its only an 80 litre fuel tank. Some of us have put in sub tanks to help with fuel range.

      Forgot to say I've steel bull bar & winch, tow bar, tradie rack, dual batt system, rear drawers, tools, half cargo barrier, & fridge slide in it 24/7. So happy with my fuel use.

    the engine will be a bit tight for the first 10,000klm , see if it improves a bit later on. because of the DPF they are not as economical as they should be. I think mine is about 8.5l / 100 living in a regional area with flat terrain

      We have a 2018 GXL, my wife predominately drives it 23km each way to work every day, accelerate using the economy bar graph, mostly 80kph and only 4 stop lights as we live just out of Townsville. Fuel consumption has never been below 9L/100. I ahve a 150 series Prado with 3.0L engine, exact same driving every day and get well over 10% better fuel econ.

        Well looks like ours has problems at only 13 to 100, and worse on eco mode

          My 2019 Crusade is just over 2 months old and it gets to around 9L per 100. i can get approx. 700Km's and I fill up about once a week.

          I drive approx.30 KM to work and back Monday to Friday - with normal stop/start suburban traffic and the odd breaks on the Tullamarine freeway at 80KM/h for 15 mins or so.

          Sometimes my kids and I will do a drive down to Geelong on a weekend fishing run, which drops the fuel down to around 8 L /100.

          I've found that driving in "Normal" mode - Not Eco - gives me the best bang per buck. It has enough balls to move her fat ass up to speed without labouring the engine in Eco mode.

          I will do a couple of weeks in Power mode only actually and see what I can get for the same daily/weekend driving we do.

          I don't have any bullbars, cargo drawers etc. other than towbar and roof rack (which I remove when not using), so i've kept the weight down to bare minimum - which obviously helps with fuel consumption.
