Your article on diesel engines was very interesting. I have a March 1970 LWB Land-Rover Sation Wagon—with a diesel engine. Yearly average is 25 m.p.g. (35 cwt. u.l.w.)—and two years ago brought home from Sutherland a ½ Bullnose chassis, engine, radiator, rear axle, 2 wheels, as well as the holiday luggage, and a 10 ft. caravan!
It has now covered 41,000 miles with no troubles. I have not even had the injectors out yet. No smoke! I keep the oil and filters changed more regularly than recommended. And it runs on Michelin XC tyres-750 x 16 —which have been on for over 26,000 miles and still have a lot of tread left.
