    Very nice truck pinncale! I wish we could get the small diesels over here.
    I still miss old Isuzu 4-wd diesel, 38 mpg was nice.
    I have ¾ ton Dodge with Cummins that gets between 20 and 25 mpg, but it has a turning radius of a ship.

    Nice to see ya here again!:waving:

    I guess they are not common over there, thats a bit strange the Landcruiser assoc is there http://tlca.org/ They are very reliable, most outback folks would not trust they lives with anything else. :)
