    Hello,
    I find the Amarok has sometimes a perfect fuel consumption and sometimes not. For example i maked 4km 1 hour ago in the city and it showed me 14.5 l/100km!!!(very high value) and the last week i maked 234KM for 16.67L of fuel(very good).
    I always let the last 2 fuel index then re-apply the tank(not full, often 16.67L), it's not good to let it always and for a long time in reserve.

    And what is your values ?And your opinion concerning the Amarok's fuel consumption ?
    (Sorry for my very bad English :( ).

    Thank you :).

    Its clear that the figures in the brochure differs from actual consumption. It states clearly a combined consuption of 7,9l/100km. The only way to get these figures is to drive like a 80 year old and never exceed 90km/h. My average consumption sincce I bought mine in February 2011 is 9,2l/ 100km. The worst consumption was 10,9l/100km and the best 8,8l/100km. Its a pity VW misleads their customers with bogus figures!!!!!!!!

    Last week i achieved a consumption of 7.4L/100Km. To be honest the Amarok has the best fuel consumption in the Pick up's market. My brother have the recent L200 and he was shocked by how less the Amarok consumes.

    I do 8.3 on average. Have not yet done any towing so that may change. To be honest I think the only way you will the official figures is on a dyno.

    Quick qualification. That's 8.3 l/100km. Not sure what that is in slugs/mole but suspect in the region of 30mpg plus?

    I have my Amarok now for a couple of months and at this point 13000km.
    I have an average consumption of 8.9/100km which is very good for a 2ton pickup.

    I set off early this morning , driving to our depot near bristol and with the usual hold ups on the m25 combined with a fair bit of 90 mph plus on the m4 it averaged 35.4 mpg. On the return journey nearly all 85 -100 mph it averaged 32 mpg . Bloody aewsome for a 4x4 truck . Definately the best driving truck in the world by along long way ! !

    You must be driving with a lead foot. I have never seen over 9l/100 but have not used it for towing yet. I have run a few trips to Durban around 600km and usually average around early 8's to late 7's if I am not pushing on too much. USually set cruise to 120km/h with gives a true speed of around 100km/h

    Cheers

    Me too i'm acheiving this values when making 270KM with 120KM/h cruise. But when the air conditionner is working i think that it effects and increase some consumption. But when you are on the 120KM/h cruise, are you in the 5th or 6th gear ?

    Getting about 32 - 33mpg average with some motorway and some lanes / town. If it's all lanes and town i'll get about 29. Hoping it will improve a bit as the engine loosens but it's still way better than my old Navara which averaged 27 on a really good tank!

    no lead foot, just your average driving....
    6th gear, with cruise set to 120km/h (real 110km/h) i get 10.5l/100km 10l at best...??
    your cars new? or run in a fair bit? i was hoping my average would get better.
    when I check my actual fuel (when filling up) against my trip computer, the best I have ever got is 9.8L/100km....

    10L at best? perhaps you drive a lot of time in town then you take a long road ;). My car has 3800M now, and just now (1hour ago) i achieved 8.4L/100KM, which i thing is perfect ;)(some town and some road at 70km/h).

    Good morning to all of my Fellow Rokkers. It is a beautiful day in Windhoek Namibia. Sunshine and very nice weather. On Fridays I use my Yamaha Raptor 700 SE to drive to work and enjpoyed it very much this morning. The Wolf stays in the garage for the day.

    My fuel consumption is acuratly documented as from the day I bought it so there is various figure that I can supply you guys with.
    Lets start.

    I have bought the Wolf in Feb 2011.

    current month running Cost N$ 119.6 C/KM
    3 month ave running cost N$ 108.56 c/Km
    YTD N$ 108.19 c/Km
    Life to Date N$ 107.42 c/Km

    Ok so that maybe do not mean alot to you guys.
    Fuel consumtion as follow. (Per month)

    September 2011 9.4l/100
    October 2011 11.4l/100
    November 2011 11.5l/100
    December 2011 11.0l/100
    January 2012 11.0l/100
    February 2012 8.4l/100
    March 2012 11.4l/100

    So now you guys are jumping up and down and say WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!! that is heavy on the juice.
    Quite right guys. I never drive slowly when on the open roads since I have to cover great distances in short periods for meetings/audit etc.
    Sometimes it is speeds up to 180km/h depend on the road conditions and time of day. This is a combination of gravel and tarred roads, fully loaded, towing a trailer and empty.

    However, the best that I have got so far while driving at an indicated(GPS) 118 Km/H was 7.6l/100km. Gents that is fenomenal.
    I always say, fuel consumption is relative to the speed that you are driving and therefore if someone would ask I just laught.
    I can just say that I have not driven a 4x4 truck before that gave me this fuel consumption, relaxed driving, comfort and safety. An co auditor called it AmaGTi.

    I have noticed that with 2x4 (summer) consumption is much lower that with the 4x4 (constantly on in the winter). In the summer 2x4 driving at about 60-70 km / h getting 7-8L/100 km and in the winter same trip (to work) 8-9L/100 km. And I try not to drive like a granny. In the winter thought it is so much fun trying to make the Rok slide ;)

    I have done now about 48000km (Rok is from June 2011).
    My fuel consumption is about 9.6l/100 km.
    This is mostly highway kilometers in cruise at 130km (120 in real).
