Does your outback have low range Scalman? If not, the low range with a decent ratio makes for a pretty good offroad gearbox for a Subaru. I've only had to do the clutch slip trick on a few occasions - doing something I probably shouldn't have been doing in the first place!

I think that's pretty good milage from a clutch, especially if you're not doing a great deal of highway kms.

Hmmm... Need to look into when another desert trip can be done...
