Hilux 22R fuel economy

Recommended Posts


Wondering what sort of economy should i expect from a 22R carby, 2.4 litre petrol engine?

Well its kinda hard to tell, it depends on what sort of driving you do? What sort of load you carry? and What size are the tyres?

Do give you an indication though.... My Lux is the 22R, i am running 31" tyres... I drive from my place to school and back every day and usually around at the weekends. I probably do about 250k's a week... I fill up once every 2 weeks. Usually about halfway through the second week. So its not as thirsty as i thought it would be.

Fuel Consumption

Best recorded during testing 8.8 L

Worst recorded during testing 10.2 L

Average on test 9.3 L

So, 10km/L would be reasonable for soft city driving.

I have a standard vanilla vehicle and drive like a camera is watching me constantly.

31" tyres??
