This brings up a question I have. After Bbuying an 02 disco then pulling up to fill the tank i realized it calls for Premium on the fuel door. Wasn't expecting that. Any Disco II owners have any experience running midgrade or regular?

Hell no I'm not complaining about that price! Just the opposite. Now if I had to pay UK prices.....then I would be complaining. You guys are getting robbed. Maybe we chould send old Georgie boy over to your country for awhile, it would get him out of our hair and maybe he would lower the petrol prices for you. Sound like a deal? :D

I should explain - I bought the lightweight in good faith and it is registered as a 1966 vehicle. And yes I know they didn't start making them until 1968. And no it isn't some unheard of leaked out prototype - its actually a series 3. But it has the right words on the V5 and the right letter on the registration plate :clap:

Result :drink1:

Fair enough, but I'd still be a bit wary if any knowledgable Bobby starts looking it over, re; tax exemption status

I had a 1969 2A Light-Weight, but mine was registered on release as a 'W'. I didn'thave it long so never sorted out any exemption for it.

Not sure about the DIIs, but my DI runs like ass on anything other than Premium, and it definitely doesn't like ethanol mixtures.

Premium is finally down to around $2.90 a gallon here in the San Francisco Bay Area... which is still high compared to most parts of the US, but better than any part of Europe...

It's about 1.35 Euro a liter on the economy. Exchange rate equals about $1.65 USD for premium. At 3.3 liters to a US gallon, that's $5.44 a gallon. I fuel on the post at $2.90 per gallon. The military tries to keep up with the average continent scale, but the cost of living allowance is being dropped by $300 per month in January. We gotta pay for the war somehow...
