    On Sunday I ran out of fuel on the M27 and as I was phoning the AA Steve in a Series 3 pulled in to offer help. Big thanks He then towed me into Sainsbury's carpark to allow the AA to jump start me as I had flattened the battery trying to get fuel through. Steve's Reg is HFG3**V if you are on here thanks again if not and anyone knows him please pass on my gratitude.

    I'm no engineer and no expert so happy to be corrected if i'm wrong but haven't hybrid diesel-electric locomotives been pretty successful for a good while now? Not saying current hybrid cars are any good but is the concept entirely worthless?

    Its part of the spirit , like the wave thing , but there are a lot fewer now that stop , so nice to hear when it happens Its also something that the owner of a older landrover is likely to do I think

    Don't really agree. The V8 is much smoother, more refined and has a bigger rev range. In their day they were also far more powerful than the 2.5TD, so it's not really fair to compare with a much newer variant. That said, a stock 3.5 is still faster than a stock Tdi... And off road the lighter weight and placement of the engine make them nicer vehicles with superior balance. And it's not as if you can't tweak a V8 either or simply unbolt the 3.5 and slip in a 3.9 The LT85 has a lot of gearstick travel, but it's not really hugely worse than an LT-77/R380 to drive.

    Would that also involve re-joining the RAF? :-) Regards.
