    That's impressive....7.78l/100 over almost 1700km....nice! The autos are a good 400-500rpm less at 100kmh than the manual box models.

    Around town I get 9.5-10.1L/100 depending on how I drive.
    Mods - ARB bar, side steps, kaymar rear bar, 265.70.17 Ko2 BFGs.

    Fuel economy was around the 11.3-12 when I was running the Dick Cepek Fun country and the MT MTZs

    which part of town? That's impressive fuel consumption for your setup!

    On my german stock 2017 Executive (similar to VX trim) i get a combined 10.5 l/100 for my driving style, withAutobahn kilometers down to 8.5 at ~120 km/hour. City is usually 12-13 l/100.

    I bought a brand new diesel Prado VX in June. I think it has done around 6,500 km now.

    When my range is down to say 40km and I fill up it only allows around 120 litres of fuel and the range returns to about 1,250 km.

    The tank is 150 litres right? So why doesn't the range increase or show more left if I 'only' add 120 litres?

    If I work out the consumption manually on these fill ups it shows a better figure than the car reads. My overall consumption on the car readout is 11 l/100 km but each tank now is showing a figure of around 9.5 l/100 km when calculated manually.

    I'm not sure if the tank isn't filling right up but the gauge is right on max or a hair above when I 'fill' it from empty range with 120 litres.

    Anyone finding the same refill from the low range tank warning?

    Yep very normal. Toyota decided it would be nice for you to think your tank is empty when there's actually 30l left. I believe its so you are less likely to run the tank dry.
