Interesting - Both Robbie Antonsen (master mechanic and master wheeler) and Mark Whatley (master mechanic and master wheeler) wheel Land Cruisers and drive Saabs.

FWIW, I get a moving weighted average of 16 MPG in my 1971 FJ40 and 15 MPG in my 1978 FJ45. My wife says I'm a freak because I keep track of this stuuf. She has no idea what she gets in her 2001 VW bug with 1.8 turbo gasser. My best guess is around 21 MPG (she has a lead foot with the turbo).
