LOL. I'm not a fan of metric myself. I was a kid when Canada switched over from MPG to L/100km.
In Canada we say it takes X amount of litres to go 100 kms. In the US, you guys say I can go X amount of miles on 1 gallon of gas. So backwards from one another.

I think it is just easier to talk in MPG.
Cheers!

My old '10 TRX4 CC 4x4 would get 22mpg empty on the hwy and 17mpg in town. Some days with dry pavement that figure would go down lol. Had the 3.92 gears as well. But I was running the 87 oct tune on the Diablo tuner to achieve that. Once the 92 oct performance map was in, well fun factor went way up and mpg went correspondingly low haaha

I average 14-16L/100km city, I have seen as low as 10.5L/100 highway but normal highway is around 12L/100 in my Outdoorsman.

^^^ Those words are oh so true !!! ^^^^

Just remember the lower the liters/100km the better while for MPG it's obviously better if it's higher. I know confusing Here's a handy table,

L/100 km = MPG
4.0 = 58.805
4.5 = 52.271
5.0 = 47.044
5.5 = 42.767
6.0 = 39.203
6.5 = 36.188
7.0 = 33.603
7.5 = 31.363
8.0 = 29.403
8.5 = 27.673
9.0 = 26.136
9.5 = 24.760
10.0 = 23.522
10.5 = 22.402
11.0 = 21.384
11.5 = 20.454
12.0 = 19.602
12.5 = 18.818
13.0 = 18.094
13.5 = 17.424
14.0 = 16.801
14.5 = 16.222
15.0 = 15.681
15.5 = 15.176

I agree and I live here!
Because of my age, I still like to think in MPG terms.
But then again, when a Canadian says gallons, they are Imperial gallons.
An Imperial gallon is 4.55 litres and a US gallon is 3.8 litres.
Remember fellow Canadian posters, our US friends are talking US gallons.
Things are bigger in Canada!
So 20 MPG here isn't really as good as it sounds because it is a bigger gallon.

BTW, I believe most of the world is metric, except the US and Britain.

By the way, the Brake logo on our dash is the canadian version dash. I wonder why they think we can't read or what but in the USA they have the BRAKE word and we have the "! " logo.

Really wish the owner's manual would be updated to reflect that!

My 3.92 geared crew 4X4 averages about 17L per 100km (about 13MPG) city here in Vancouver. The city is anti free-flowing traffic and there is a lot of stop and go.
I've achieved a high of 11.2 L per 100km (about 20.9 MPG) on hwy.

ive always avg 12-14mpg in my truck... reset the EVIC every 4-5 tanks.

city ill see usually 12.5MPG - 13

13-14.5 on highway going 115km's the odd day ill see 15

if im correct my tank is 98litres.. I avg about 450km's to a tank of fuel.

It used to get 15-17mpg on avg but seems like thats a far fetched dream with it now... ive changed a few things in hopes to get it better with minimal luck.
