I've regularly carried 300 hundred litres of diesel in the back of mine. It's barely noticeable, driving wise, and it's quite a bit heavier than petrol/gas

Thank you for the considered answers.

I have to come clean and own up that my question related to whether there was a noticeable difference in performance of your Landy between using either water or fuel in the combustion process.

Not only do I feel slightly chastened by the honest answers given but the living in Scotland, the 10m RIB and the trip(s) to Mongolia has made me turn a shade of Eastnor Green.

Back to the OP - I hope that you've managed to form an opinion based on all the 'advice' provided.
