    Hi, Got a face-lift Freelander TD4. It's pulling a 4 berth caravan and it's for the most part effortless but hills do present a problem if they go on for too long. Would 'chipping' it be any help? I'm hearing 50% increases in torque and HP. Any owners out there to verify? It's got...

    Diesel Engines PROPANE injection

    I know it's not an alternative, but adding LPG/Propane to your system will enhance power and mileage, and reduce your emissions. I have fitted 5 landrovers with it, and the results are amazing. Loads of power, and a lot better return on fuel. When I went down to the LRO show, I did 190 miles...
