We have got a lot of different responses.
I notice there is 2 BT50 I guess they both got the same motor.
One is towing 2.5 ton and loub gets 17 liters per 100 km.
Muzz and Colette are towing 3.2 ton and is getting 18 liters per 100 km.
So that 0.7 tons must make the tug use another liter per 100 km.
Interesting.

I used to check my fuel consuption a fairly regular basis and I did for a time use OTs spreadsheet to keep some record.
But.......I fell outa the habit............. :(
I have a reasonably good idea of how often I fill the tanks and I don't notice much variation.
I've started to take the attitude that if you need fuel, buy it.

and if you need to worry about it time to give caravanning away.

For the record Dmax at 90klm towing 2.4T Jayco Outback Journey with the wind 13L'/100klm against the wind up to 18L/100klm.

I fill up once a day when on the road as I have a 130L tank

My spreadsheet is not a budget. As a Techo I thrive on accurate data for statistical use :D

It can point to trends perhaps relating to mechanical issues.

Also I find it very helpful when I want to know if I was at certain place/town before and when.

I used OTs spreadsheet until I changed to Apple so thanks for the copy and the help when for a reason I can’t remember it went pearshaped. With using that (I did religiously and still do) I made one up using numbers and while not quite as detailed in some areas serves my purpose well. Sorry I digress. ;-)

200 series diesel towing 3.3t at posted speed limits averaged 20L/100k. Best was 17.3 and worst one was a section across the Nullarbor into a very strong headwind 28 :o I have never driven for economy, but, I am going to try that on our next trip away as a comparison.

The issue was in Feb 2012 and I said, quote.....

This is all Billy Goat's fault as changing the field formats when an xls is opened as an xlsx should be an absolute No-No.
