I get around 450 to 500 kilometers per tank in normal driving or around 600 on the highway (at around 120 kph). This is until the fuel light comes on and I cna then get around 82-85 ltrs of fuel into the tank (102 ltr capacity).

Can't tell you how it goes in the snow as we don't get much of that here in Saudi ;), its 31 C at the moment. But I have used it of road (I have 4 X 4 LE) and in the sand dunes and its not too bad for a big old lump.

actuall km per tk

i am thinking to buy a armada.But I want to know how many kilometres it can run with full tank fuel??
Another is how is armada for the road with snow??
Thank you very much.
In Saudi there is no winter fuel with a lower octane, nor a need to warm up the vehicle on a sub 0 day. In the real snow belt area with Canadian winter fuel I get about 350- 400 km per tk(low fuel light on. 80 l fill up), but most of that is in town, and on trips that the engine does not get a chance to warm up completly. we'll be taking a longer highway trip this weekend I'll post fuel consumption l

Before the gas stations swtiched to winter fuel I was getting 400-450 in town. I really do not have too much highway experience with the Mada yet, but I can make the 4.5 hour trip from home to the Windsor ON area on a single tank with room to spare.

With Michelin Xterrains the truck is pretty good in deep snow (by deep I mean bumper height drifts, the weight and tire size really help, ) However, in slush and on roads with icy patches the truck wanders(even in 4 Hi, more so in Auto). It wants to be pulled into the deep slushy stuff( read ditch) and wags its tail when transistioning between ice and hard packed snow(or icy rutted pavement). Keeping the speed down aleaviates this tendancy but it is more a function of poor tire performance in these conditions(see the numerous threads on different tires)

Actual milage

Got 540 km, fill up, to warning light on the recent trip(82 litre fillup)

Keep in mind we are still using winter gas and /or an ethanol blend(5-10%), the AC compressor is on all the time(windsheild defroster is always on) And I only spent an hour or less on a major highway (100+ km/h)

The switch to summer gas will add 10-20% better fuel milage and the spring time weather will allow the ac to be turned off ( do not need the defrost). I'd probably get another 10% better milage by using premium fuel, but it costs 15% more.

I'll post again in late April with results as soon as the summer gas is delivered

:excellent The Armada is great in the snow. I live in Colorado and this thing rocks! I went on a trip through the panhandle of Texas last December and the roads were covered with ice. Semis were turned over, cars and trucks were in the ditch and I was passing everyone wondering what was the problem. I finally stopped for the night because everywhere we got gas everyone was telling us about the long lines up ahead because of wrecks. All I can figure out is that the Armada has a great wheel base and the vehicle dynamic control feature really works. Either that or God gave us special powers.

We also use it for back and forth to work and when it snows, we rule. While everyone else, including many 4x4's, are stuck, we move on with no problems. As I said, maybe we're just "special"!
