My 300tdi Disco (with 300k on the clock!) does about 28. So the older generation TD probably not quite as much?
Was the 2.4TD put in the Defender? I thought that that (2.4l VM engine) only went in the RR.
2.25 with a turbo in the defender of that age was badged Turbo D?
The slightly later car with a 200TDI would be a better bet if funds allow.
Used Brooklyn for some servicing on my previous 4x4 - 1987 RR V8 with 250K. They were hopeless. Couldn't make fuel pipes. Charged an arm and a leg for a steering box. I wasn't happy.
I would tend to look around the clubs and see what's up for sale if you've got time.
