Fuel consumption :
going my 300GE (SWB)
16,5 Liter / 100 KM on normal Street tires (225/75/16)
17,8 Liter/ 100 KM on MT 235/80/16
- 1 to 1,5 Liter
Wintertime : add one additional Liter
So latest yesterday :
MT, City, Overland, Standheating : 18,7 Liter/100KM which comes to 30 liter for the 100 Miles if I convert it correct.
with 95 Liter -> you'll end up with something above 300 Miles (1Mile= 1,609 KM) so you are right.
Do you have th original tires on or did you change and forget to change the ratio on the Spedometer ?
I know this wont help you with overheating, but could be the answer for your fuel consumption.

an additional Idea. Did you ever run fresh water through your radiator ? to remove the old mud ??
