Longy - The City miles are what is killing you! If you can get less start/stop into your day, you'll see much better mileage, and I imagine that your stress levels won't be so high, as well.

My NL (92L tank, I think) does about 600km on the Central Coast, with about 10-15L to spare. I do drive like a nanna, but I am not getting a speeding ticket for anyone! So if you're sitting behind me, tough beans - odds are, my car is bigger than yours (said to the average Joe).

My new to me '94 SWB just got 13.6 L/100K or 17.29 mpg - first fill up. 5 speed, A/C on around town mostly. This is comparable with my U.S. Gen 1 - same drive train.
LWB 92L tank
SWB 75L tank

For Those that tried it out on 98Ron from 92Ron. You might need a few tanks to be filled up before you start to see any improvement on Power and economy, as it takes the computer to self adjust with the 98Ron after a while.

now im not sure if this is correct or not but i was told by a mechanic that has worked on pajeros for a long time, i said to him that i use premium when i fill up and he said that i should be doing a 1:3 ratio that being 1 premium tank to 3 normal tanks because he said that the premium cleans the engine and with my model if it cleans to much then the internals become sticky and therefore makes it worse so he said that this ratio will clean but not trip it of the coating that the normal fuel puts on there.

cheers Longy

My 3L NH gets 600 on 31's and about 540 on 33's, but most of my driving is up and down hills around the Dandenongs if that make much difference.

Oh and i've also retired mine to being the weekend warrior and i now have another car for getting to work and running around that uses less fuel.

My NH uses about 15-17l/100km around Sydney traffic.

Motor is only about 4000kms old so I'll do a oil change at 5000kms and maybe the economy gets a bit better as the motor loosens up.

Mine is also a weekend warrior. My run around uses half of what the Pajero does

Re.. 3.0 Ltr V6 (1994)

Managed to achieve 10.8 Ltrs/100 (21.7mpg) on my way to Sydney from Melbourne.. This is with low eco Air con and a little bit of wind up to 105 km/hr

On the way back it as very hot and windy so high aircon and high drag. Economy dropped to 11.8 Ltrs/100 (19.8mpg)

Just for reference.. as I posted earlier, around town I get between 12.3 to 12.8 Ltrs/100 no aircon.
