  1. First road trip with my Supercharged Dynamic RRS

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Took my first road trip in my V8 RRS. I thought for sure fuel economy would be worse. I made it from Syracuse NY all the way to NYC and back on one tank of fuel ~500 miles). Still had 15 miles to spare according to the car. I averaged 24.2 mpg over the entire trip. This seemed a bit high. For...
  2. The Unicorn Lives - Low mileage 2001 RR 4.6L Trip Report

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    After laying down a high bid on BAT for the Unicorn, I had settled that this was fair if the vehicle was truly a 2k mileage P38 with no major issues. That said, this board and the maintenance challenges of this model had raised legitimate concerns that I might have gotten a bit over my skiis...
  3. First-hand exp. w/ Trip Interruption reimbursement in USA?

    General Chatter
    I've got an engine-related issue that's bitten me away from home and has prolonged my stay out of town. I'm wondering whether those who've had experiences w/ reimbursement can share their stories, smooth or not. I'm hoping that my prolonged stay in the hotel I'd originally planned to check out...
  4. First Camping trip in new ATB

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Had a great inaugural outing in the new ATB this weekend up in Monache Meadows (Eastern Sierra Nevadas). The new KO2 BFG’s did great. We did multiple water crossings, huge muddy puddles and some pretty tight and technical trails. The trails I would rate a 4 out of 10 in difficulty at their most...
  5. Difference between real MPG vs indicated on Trip Computer

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    About 10 days ago I picked up my new Range Rover Sport V8 SC and so far I have covered 1600km. I have noted that there is a BIG discrepancy between the Real consumption values, by comparing values indicated by the trip computer to how much fuel enters in the tank after each refill. So far, my...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi All, I have a L322 2004 4.4 V8 Vogue on LPG with 145k miles on it. This all started when I changed a coil 2 years ago. It's a pretty simple operation as everyone knows, and I was sure to disconnect the battery etc. Anyway, on recommission the car developed an annoying issue of if I put...

  8. 2014 RRS - tire/wheel change and quick trip to the beach

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I picked up a cheap set of 20" OEM wheels, and swapped out the original 21" wheel/tire combination on my 2014 Autobiography for the 20" wheels and slightly larger tires. As reported in other threads, the P275/55R-20 size works fine, no rubbing. I bought Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season tires...
  9. Hesitate to Take a '14 RR SC on Extended Wilderness Trip?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Would love to hear opinions and/or experiences from anyone who has or is thinking about a multiple week trip in remote areas with an L405. My old County was so thrashed and falling apart it wasn't funny but the thing took me everywhere. I've had 4 Landcruisers (Two FJ40, FJ55, FJ60) and several...
  10. Road trip in new 2017 LWB SC

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Drove from Houston, TX to Santa Fe, NM earlier this week and will drive back to Houston tomorrow. Should be totally broken-in by the time we get home. Random thoughts/observations: what an incredible ride! Much better than any BMW I've owned (so glad to get away from run-flats) and even better...

    Range Rover Classic
    After installing the new thermostat and topping up the coolant (from the heater hoses tower) the truck is getting as hot as it did before. After a short trip around my neighborhood, I cannot put my hand on the upper hose, the radiator or any central part of the engine for more than a second -...
  12. Trans Failsafe Prog Message on my 2004. Road trip?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    So I've started getting the Trans Failsafe Prog warning and I had it checked out and it came back that the cause was the Transfer Case Shift Motor. It's very intermittent. I can go for a week with no error message and then have it happen 3 times in one day. I realize from reading other posts...

  14. Trip A and B as well as Temp Display settings

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Forgive me if I screw something up here. I am a newbie but have searched and not found an answer anywhere else on the forum. My 2010 RR Sport HSE recently started displaying an odd behavior. If left sitting for any length of time, the Trip computer resets both A and B and the temperature...

  17. Anyone ever integrated an OBD Trip Computer on their RRC?

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi all, Remembering back 30 years ago to when a friend of mine added a trip computer to his new Jeep, I was wondering if anyone with a 1995 RRC has done the same - add a computer with LED or LCD read-out to the dash that could show fuel economy, miles travelled, average speed and the like? If...

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Just finished a 4 day, 2,000 mile road trip in my 2016 Range Rover TD6 HSE. Average MPG was 27 and that includes several hrs with the cruse control set at 89 MPH through Nevada and Utah. Pulls very strongly from 50-90+ MPH once you learn to surf the diesel power wave. Range was 500+ highway...
