What 4x4?

Almost any reputable and robust 4x4 will be suitable for one of our longer 4x4 Adventure Drives (although perhaps the smaller recreational types are less so). We are not in the business of recommending one make over another, but a few jottings may be helpful.

(i) Think about taking a diesel because

(a) diesel fuel is much more widely available than petrol in some countries

(b) diesel fuel is cheaper in many places

(c) diesel vehicles are more economical

(d) this gives them longer range for a given tank size/weight of fuel

(e) a diesel engine copes better with dirty fuel

(f) you avoid the "leaded/unleaded" problem
