Yep keeping the folks at Vic Roads in a job. Cruiser "gone" car # 20 something on its way. Just bought another TD5 Disco Shocked . Am sick of LPG reckon it should only be for BBQ's. Also towed the van to Nagambie Lakes Caravan park at easter and is only 70k's from my place and used a quarter and a half of fuel Shocked Shocked Mad Mad No No . So its back to an oil burner for me Very Happy .
Why? well the ashtray was overflowing Rolling Eyes Laughing

Now that the govt is supporting gas I just cant see the advantage of having it. It's 90 cpl here ... factor in the extra fuel it uses and it's just not worth it.

Another TD5 Steve? I'm wetting myself in laughter ... Wink

Cool

Not stuff ups Steve ... lerning curves ... Wink

I like the TD5 as a towing vehicle but the newer ones wnt let you use WDH. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing ... I'm still out and about and I haven't put my WDH on for the past few days as I have been on dirt roads and I didn't notice any real difference. Might do the rest of the trip without it and see how I go. It's more when trucks overtake I notice the difference but with the heavier van it may track better than the Jayco.

Cool

Nah Ron it has factory self leveling airbag rear and to use LR's it can bugger the compressor. My other one had the same on it and could'nt use the LR's on that either.
