    Runs on the smell of a diesel rag

    Drinks less than you do

    Left: (37Kb) "Runs on the smell of a diesel rag"  A variation of the Australian saying of "Runs on the smell of an oily rag" when referring to a very economical car. Note the rag on a stick (like a carrot on a stick) in front of the Defender.

    Right:(31Kb) "Drinks less than you do"  Another advert extolling the fuel economy of the diesel Defender.



    I'm still working on this. More will be coming when I find some more interesting adverts. Don't forget to check the other adverts for Discos, Rangies, Series Rovers and, of course, Freelanders. If you know of any humourous ads, I'd be interested in seeing them.
