Hello, new to the forums.

Thinking about buying this 00' Discovery. It has all the bells and whistles, but I am just worried about the gas mileage WITHOUT the tent.

Here is the listing:

2000 Land Rover Discovery

As you can see, this truck has:
ARB Winch Bumper
Rear Steel Bumper
Skid Plate
Rack
3 inch lift
33" BFG All terrain tires
about 200,000 miles.

With all of this put into consideration, what do you suppose the MPG would be on this truck? A fellow at Land Rover Special Vehicles told me he would be surprised if it got 8 MPG. Keep in mind, I will be taking off the tent, so do not include that in your estimation for MPG.

What do you guys think?

Ok, sorry about that.

What do you suppose the MPG will be? Some people said 10-12, and others said 8

I would lean towards the 8 mpg and not much better. Worse in cold weather / with winter formulated fuel.
8,12, ...whatever in my opinion.
If fuel mileage is an issue for you, buy something else.
If you are convinced this the vehicle for you then does a 50 mile per tank difference really matter?
