What is the Ave fuel consumption of a 300Tdi? I never exceed 110kmph in a defender. KM per liter please....

There is one for sale at R135 000 its a 1997 Model with all service records. Engine has never been overhauled.

ANY advice sincerely welcome.

I have just personally overhauled my 300Tdi engine at 340 000 kms. I think if you are buying a vehicle with nearly 300 000 kms on it you should ask for a R30 000 discount to cover the cost of an engine rebuild.
I may be a bit out of date as to what it would cost you as I bought all the parts for my rebuild over ten years ago when I worked at Landyonline.

So you should check up from a good place as to the cost nowadays.
