Please school me on the current 3.0 Rover diesel in the RR Sport
Wife looking for a new truck and set on the 2016 RR Sport. We have always driven gas engines but would like to increase time between visiting the gas station. She drives a 2010 Range Rover with 100K miles which we are keeping for our 2 driving age children.
What are the issues, costs, maintenance considerations in the current 3.0 L V6 turbocharged Rover engine compared to a gas engine?
My friend had his Mercedes GL almost ruined by the gas attendant pumping regular gas into his diesel GL and had to have major service after he started the diesel engine with petrol.
The local Land Rover car salesman told me (I live in NJ where it is illegal to pump your own gas) that you had to or could pump your own gas with diesel. Is this true? Isn't there modification of the gas pump which prevents insertion of the petrol nozzle into a diesel tank? This is the main reason my wife is concerned about the diesel. For those who are familiar with Nantucket, how is the supply for diesel?
Will probably buy this weekend as LR Paramus seems to have a great inventory.
