Hi new to all this so apologies if this is a basic question.

Looking at getting a vehicle for green lane work.

Re: disco or 110 county

Hi,

Welll to be honest with you - I have run a Discovery for Five years and a
Defender for 9 months. The Defender is vastly superior and far more able to
cope. Go for a Defender as they are far better tow cars. Also the defender
will be better in mud and i would suspect the ground clearance is better.

Re: disco or 110 county

I Love V8's but if it was purely for green laning i would go for tdi.
My Discovery is lpg with twin underslung tanks - wot no ground clearance!!!
I didnt want a tank inside as I didnt want to loose the space.

Re: disco or 110 county

Space wont be a problem, so is it worth it with tanks in side?

Re: disco or 110 county

only you can decide that. I prefer to keep available space inside which is
why my 90 is petrol only. If I had 110 I still wouldnt want a tank inside.
Plenty of people do, just my opinion.
The other downside of a V8 is the fuel consumption, when we go off roading
we can use a tankful easily in a day. Must be well into single figures. But
it does sound nice!!!

TDis are less prone to problems with water.
