26-27 is good, i get similar out of my auto, which has been chipped by Owen Developments. I would avoid any other chips apart from the Toyota one (which costs 750) as they all have a reputation for malfunctioning and putting you into limp mode. Unfortunately Owen dont make them anymore due to lack of demand, although i know of at least 6 people who now want one since they've stopped making them!!

Any other questions PM me

I always take 10-15% of those figures as a minimum as they're virtually impossible to replicate. They're done using the lowest spec vehicle to reduce the weight with the thinnest tyres to reduce rolling drag and airflow. By the time most of us add the odd little toy, lights, roll bars etc, and run wider tyres on the Invinicble than the HL3 you won't get the same figure.

As for driving a Navara. he probably doesnt get much time to drive it as they spend most of their in the garage with warranty problems :D

My truck has got 285 tyres and has loads of toys in it so i think 24-27 isnt bad. Yeah i'd like it to do more, but my only regret is not buying an Import 4.0v6 having it converted to LPG as then i'd be getting equivalent of 42mpg (based on 18mpg 55/l for LPG versus 130/l diesel)

I have a 1994 Surf 3.0 SSRX Diesel Auto and, on a good day, get about 8.4 kilometres per litre (or about 24 miles per gallon) out of it.

Toyota do not do the test that give these figures,

It is the government that runs the test and makes Toyota publish the figures that they found on their tests.

So I am guessing Toyota GB will do nothing about this because they technically did not claim these figures, the government did.
