Hi All,


By the way if anyone got some pic's of the new truck in action could you pm me as i would like to get a copy of them if possible.

Cheers Colin.
Glad you got home ok Colin, and got the fuel issue sorted. What ended up being the issue in the end? Didn't get many photos of the "Beast" in action but have attached the two that it featured in. :) Thanks again for allowing us to share the ride your car - it was a great day. Didn't realise until after I posted the photos - that the panorama one has @17Triton with 3 legs. :)

Found the tyres to be the issue, did some testing around home and have just come back from a couple of days away with standard size tyres and i can afford to go away again. The best figures around home on a trip up the H/way was 11.9lt/100km with the big tyres, since changing over to the original tyres just a quick trip up the H/way & back of 60km's had it down to 9.2 and still dropping. The trip away over the last 4 days which was through mostly hilly (big hills) with the van and its doing 16.5lt/200km, so on the flats it will probably get better again.
I have got a few pic's of the Beast but not a lot so if any has some more or video it would be greatly appreciated.
It was a pleasure having you both along for the day and i'm glad that you both enjoyed it..

Thought I had better put some pics up on here rather than on my own trip reports.
Big thanks for @Smergen for organising the event we all had a great trip at a great location with great people..
