I think this is one of the vehicles that Land Rover circumvented Customns & Excise regulations with.

It was realised that the PTO driven compressors were (obviously) running on duty-paid 'White Diesel' (normal DERV) & thus expensive to operate.
So.......................

They approached C&E with the question worded in a certain way asking if they made the Compressors self-propelled, was it legal to use 'Red Diesel' for road transportation??

At the time C&E said "YES"

I presume the ruling does not apply now??, so try it at your own risk!!

Having looked into this, I'd got it the wrong way round, it was actually Broome-Wade who approached Customs & Excise about making the compressors self-propelled.

Of course they didn't mention that the equipment was mounted on a LR to C&E:clap:
