Manual mode.

Most modern autos have the option to shift up and down manually through the box.

I'm no mechanic but I think I worked out your fuel consumption problem.
If you look at these all linked together it makes sense.  ;)

1. Driving in first gear (not unusual)
2. Driving in first gear at 100km/h (slightly unusual)
3. Driving in first gear at 100km/h with the handbrake on. (unusual)
4. Driving in first gear at 100km/h with the handbrake on will cause mild to heavy fuel consumption. (very unusual)

If you need me to troubleshoot any more issues please let me know I'm here all week.  :imaposer:

Presume the "1" is the first page of the multi-page display. The hand brake sign is actually an orange trailer- vehicles here have an electric trailer brake hook-up. Can adjust the level of trailer braking from inside the truck.

Quite possibly, Like I said, I'm no mechanic. BUT in the land of the bind the one eyed man is king.  :thumleft: :biggrin:

You almost had Bozo. The orange light indicates that “tow/ haul” mode is selected. It changes the fuel mapping and the shift pattern and activities engine braking. The M is for manual. I can press + or - on the shift lever to manually change gears. The 1 on the right is 1st gear only. If in heavy traffic and towing you can select that and it won’t constantly shift between 1st and 2nd. Or if in 4x4 low in thick sand.


Manually selected 6th gear..

30l/100km impressive  :thumleft:

It will need to be turned off at the gas station - or it will never get full.
I consider myself a pessimist. I am therefore always right...eventually.

Luckily the tank holds 135l. My Duramax Diesel got 24l/100km pulling the same setup. Its better consumption for sure, but you lose it in maintenance and purchase price. If I pulled something like that every day, a diesel will be my only choice.

Looks like a nice way to spend some vacation time.  Water skiing used to keep me in excellent shape, made muscles sore I didn't know I had! 

Hope all is well up there with you and your fam, Immigrant.
Prepare yourself for four more years 😎
