    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Not really. Every night after making camp I stand on the side step and take one or two down, they are only 10L so not too heavy and put them into the tank. The hard part is climbing up and having the pump handed to me to top them up and before everyone comes on and says I can't do that I know. If its earthed its ok. and that's as simple as letting one of the tie downs hang to the ground. I did find myself in a tricky situation once when we were coming down Brewery track (took the five vehicles about two and half hours) and I was on a hell of an incline going over a step down and the motor stalled. Quickly worked out that only having a 1/4 tank of petrol in the sub and the incline the fuel uptake was dry. Having LPG you might think no problem, just flick the switch but my system only starts on petrol and at 1500revs will change to LPG automatically. So I had to stay put with my foot firmly on the break while my crew clambered up top to get two 10l jerrys down and into the tank. Started up and continued the crawl down with lessen learnt. So thinking about your question 256 ,yeah it is a pain in the arse.
