    Our Mazda has it and the change between city and highway driving range is noticeable. Much longer on the highway. I think it updates every 10 Ks.
    I have filled up in the city after driving there for a week and headed out on the highway and the range to empty figure has remained unchanged down to the Gold Coast, cruising at 100 kmh.

    Yesterday I was in a DAF CF85 pulling an AB Triple side-tipper set. (Empty, thank goodness).
    Coming up Walleroo hill on the Carnarvon Highway, the dash was telling me it was burning diesel at the rate of 85 litres per 100klm.
    One of the selling points for the DAF, is their fuel efficiency!

    I have seen the D4 dash readout at 56l/100,in low range in soft sand....actual was probably 60l/100.

    The reading is way out of whack,i don't use it anymore,always optimistic.

    A bit different from one of my brothers 10yr old Plado,it is spot on.

    Hopefully LR have it sorted by the time the new Defender arrives.

    Itís a computer. They dictate the programming, maths, variability. Itís inaccuracy is deliberate. No they wonít sort it for the next model for the same reasons no manufacturer ever has

    The T909s with E15s I used to work on would be getting 1L per 1Km towing three empty drop decks on flat roads between Katherine and Port Augusta. The way back loaded with hay, they would see up to 10L per 1Km if they had a head wind. A couple of the driver's would drive at night when/if the weather was better.

    I've been using one of those Scangauge II for years now. Once u enter all the settings and the correct "fudge %" factor, then the economy reading that it puts out is pretty accurate. The Fuel required to fill your tank is also 99% spot on as well...
    Cheers.....

    Back on the 200 series v LR..my fisherman mate had a 200 and is well aware of its failings and has spent heaps on gvm and other mods. Snorkel next on the list...

    I am looking for a decent RR which causes him much concern..why don't you buy a 200 he says...RRs are way too complicated..there's too much to go wrong..he says☺

    I resist pointing out the bleeding obvious similarities and probs with the 200 but i simply can't win on resale. His trade in is less than 10k on what he paid 3 years ago😐

    Mind you he will not drive the 200 on dirt roads due to the intake design issue...he has a Patrol for that task!!

    A Defender or a 79 Series would outperform either of these offroad because they are both a No nonsense 4WD that are designed with capability being the foremost goal.
    Modern SUV's are a compromise between Luxury/Comfort/Looks and 4WD capability/Reliability and that's just fine if that's the sort of vehicle you want to drive and being a D2a owner I Completely understand But for hard core everyday use offroad it is hard to surpass a Defender/79 Series/Patrol.
    I would put any stock Discovery 3,4 or 5 over any stock Defender (can't say about Toyota as I haven't driven one) anywhere and it will outperform the Defender in every way and give you comfort and safety.

    I think there are many situations when a Disco 3-4 would outperform our Defender, but I'm sticking with the Defer.

    Defender and Disco

    I think I will have to agree with Andrew K. With the D2 the Defender still had the storage space up itís sleeve. The D3 took care of that. Donít know that much about the space in the D5 but the D3and D4 match the Defender for storage space if you are not using the back seats. I would not be surprised if the smaller engine in the Defenders would get more mileage than the V6 Disco. But comfort and safety the Discos have it over the Defenders.

    Iíd rather have to clean out a Defender after muddy boots than a Disco!
