4h will have gain fore safe driging, less stress on rear drive train and tires, but worst fuel economy (at least on paper)

So driving in 2h is basically for fuel economy or if you want to have more "fun" in your daly driving

Do you notice a difference in fuel economy?

Im interested to see if it actually does give such a massive difference in economy

My NW spends a lot of its time in 4h. Difference in fuel economy is bugger all. I use 4h for wet weather and towing. Still get good mileage when towing.

Like others its 4H for towing or wet & slippery roads and 2H all other times. i don't know about difference in fuel economy between the two as I don't pay attention and I have never towed in 2H.

Like others have said its not much. Maybe an exta 0.5l per 100km. Your right foot plays a part in that thought.

I find (and I've posted this before) that due to the torque and open rear diff, even on completely dry roads 2H just does not have the traction. Boot it off the mark while turning and you risk getting a savage power cut as the ASC kicks in. IMHO just too dangerous when pulling out in heavy traffic to leave it in 2H all the time on the road.

Recently drove Sydney Brisbane via New England Highway, 10.5l per 100k. Returned coast road M1 9.8 fill to fill.

4H all the way.
