A new set of wheels even if it second hand is always exciting, and when it is new very exciting!

And dipping you hand into your pocket for that sort of money is very scary, not to mention stressful

Long distance offroad touring, and towing a caravan, is what its being built for, and the occasional adventure into the unknown

Took the truck for a 750k round trip in a day, fuel consumption was 8.2l per 100k, not bad for a new motor that's just ticked over 1000klms



Some pics along the way

They are easy on fuel for sure. The silos look great!

The silos are here in Victoria in a little Mallee town called Brim and were painted by Guido van Helten.

Its great to be able to drive 750k and still have juice in the tank, the old Foz would be starting to spit chips at 500k. The tanks 76l, i will get a long ranger, 147l i think they are, later down the track.
