    That probably is close to real life....

    Unless you want to travel under the speed limit,country run, on the black top,unloaded,no accessories.

    Bottom line is it needs a larger tank,particularly if towing or doing remote area travel.

    Hopefully the after market guys will be onto it.

    If it will run on e10 rubbish I’m sure it will run on Opal but with reduced performance (opal = RON91) and likely slightly more fuel burn

    That was in a RRS, completely different vehicle

    Based on this @ 9.9L it gives 900km blacktop range stock. Which is plenty for road any day of the week.

    Maybe 1/3 off that for off-road touring or 600km range.

    40L in a poly and your sorted and only 45kgs added.

    Giving you approx 985km offroad range without a long range tank.

    European standard is 95RON.
    Australian standard was set at 91 as our oil refineries at the time werer optimised for 91.
    I sat next to the bloke who set the standard once on a flight from Thailand to OZ.

    [I][[I]/I]That was in a RRS, completely different vehicle[/I]


    Yup - it is a different vehicle - but JLR claim the RRS with P400 economy at 8L/100
    Real world testing it gets 14.5l/100

    Does that mean in the defender claiming 9.9 that real world will be 16-17!!!!!!

    BR once you have your new jalopy.
    Let’s find a pub 850km from your place
    You get there on the main tank I’ll buy the beers!!!

    My mistake
    I found the 30.7mpg on a US spec sheet and so did conversion according to US gallons (just under 8L/100)

    Either way I agree the 14s is probably a good flog number but the question is:

    Journalist Flogging < or > low range +/- soft sand @ GVM on 91RON

    My guess is in touring spec you will be using 14-15 as a burn number?
    As you say not the end of the world but another 50-60L would be nicer.
