    We run two Land Rover 110 station wagons.

    One a 2.5 petrol avg 17-20mpg (only does around 3000miles pa)
    The other a 2.5 Tdi, avg 25-30mpg (about 8000miles pa)

    Thing is both are used for towing and off road and when it floods round here we can still get about and both will be around long time after any greenpeace protesters cars are visiting the great scrap yard in the sky.

    Estimates are that 75% of ALL Land Rovers ever built are still on the road. Not many manufacturers can boast that.

    So okay on day to day running they are not the most enviro friendly cars on the road but on longevity, their a winner.

    When greenpeace start blockading airports and aircraft manus then maybe I’ll be interested in their opinions, but they won’t do that cos then they won’t be able to go to Ibiza/Kos/Spain etc.

    Sorry to digress off topic BTW
