If you look at the little photo carefully you might be able to count 21 jerries of petrol, and two 25Ls of water, amongst the other gear. Apart from the roadhouse at Marla having very good figures for that particular day, it enabled three petrol vehicles to venture deep into Avgas country without destroying their catalytic converters. The Discovery, being a diesel, was able to get fuel easily and no jerries of diesel were needed.

Can only see hills and trees, Bob, think someone's pinched your jerries while you were climbing the hills? Would have needed a truck to pinch that many j'cans.

Hooroo...

Truckster,
the tow vehicle refuelled at Pipalyatjara without needing refuelling in between. Although the land is very flat, the fuel economy went down from the usual less than 10L/100km to about 14L/100km.
