Fuel Consumption HP 4WD's.

Mercedes ML55 AMG : On a 271km flat out trip : 29.9litres per 100km.Top speed 242kph.
BMW X5 4.6iS : as above : 31.7litres per 100kms. Top speed 250kph.
Porsche Cayenne : as above : 48.1litres per 100kms. Top speed 280kph.
The Porsche has a 100l fuel tank and needed refueling every 200km's.
Overland 4WD achieved these figures in the NT.
Not bad for 4WD. !!!!

Re: Fuel Consumption HP 4WD's.

I wonder how much it improves if they cruise at 200 ?
Pushing one of the nuggets through the air at 280 would have to hurt the economy, as it obviously does . . .

Re: Fuel Consumption HP 4WD's.

my god thats pathetic. Are these average fuel cons or flat out?
If I had a car that lasted 200kms I'd want my money back.

Re: Fuel Consumption HP 4WD's.

These 4WDS were driven flat out with mirrors folded in.
One of the pictures in Overland 4WD, shows the Cayenne speedo at 254km/hr and the trip computer showing 50litres per 100kms !!!
These driven normally , average 20litres per 100kms.
Next year we get Volkswagens V10 diesel Toureg. !!!!
I posted this out of interest. If I had a scanner, I would have scanned the pictures.
The test was done in the NT.
