freelander.....no it is a "real landrover" its a 1960 109 series 2, with a 2.8 isusu engine turboed and intercooled, 1.222 discovery transfer case, Defender main 5 speed box D suffix with the high 5th gear 3.55 final drive ratio. 235/85/16 tyres, Parabolic springs, and series axles with rangerover/defender discs on the back and toyota discs/wilwood calipers on the front.
The 40 mpg is driving at a steady 56mph, and genarally driving like an old fart!! driven at normal Mway speeds probably nearer 28-30mpg.
I have done 40mpg for 3 tanks of fuel now and thats an average, i thought it was unbelievable too...........
