Double Cabs......

Do any Double Cabs return more than 30mpg driven on long motorway runs or are they all in the twenties?

TIA

Orve.

I get about 29 mpg on country roads on my Navara. Manage about 34 on dual carrageways (no motorways this far north). Running on BFG A/Ts but well pumped up. Cruise control helps. Playing around with a spider tuning box at the moment. Might be getting 36 in between tripping the engine management into safe mode.

Black though.

Towing an empty Erde biscuit tin perhaps.

Do you have a computer in the LR? Those are impressive figures you're getting. Our TDV6 Disco wont do that well.

No Computer, the 6 speed box is just great.

Is the Disco Auto?
