Please post your Land Cruiser mpg here (plus any notes that you think may help others compare, like your driving style, model year, odometer reading, etc.). Thanks,

Steve, Host

    2003 LC with 30500 miles. Mostly city driving (short trips - 2~3 miles)in South Florida (A/C on all the time). Average between 14.5 and 15.5 mpg. I was using 5w30 Mobil 1 but changed to 10w30 Mobil 1 at the last oil change interval. No difference in mileage. Tires inflated to 30psi front and 31psi rears. I rarely push the tach past 2k RPM and I always try to coast to a red light.

    With 285/75 BFG AT tires and a lift (inflation 35F 38R) I'm getting about 13.5 -14.5 mixed driving. On straight, flat Interstates using cruise control and 93 octane, I've gottne 20.2 a couple of times with 18-19 being fairly routine. And yes, coasting when ever possible sure helps. Saves gas AND brakes too.

    While I've found no difference between 89 and 91 octane, I have seen mileage increase with 93 or 94 octane--both in town and on the highway. About 1mpg+

    2002/43,000 miles

    Around 9 miles a gallon on a 1991 machine. It used to get 14 - so age seems to matter.

    The new LandCruiser 70-series will make 23 miles/gallon with the new V8, with more power!
