No the pressure of the exhaust gases will ensure that nothing gets in. If you stall that is a different matter however if the enigine is running it is almost impossible for water to travel up the pipe.Regards

If you intend on going in rivers with a diesel , it is advisable that you re silicone your snorkle joints every time , the slightest amount of water will cause hydrolic lock up

Hi uppy...I am happy with my fourby..... I was a little dejected though when i posted my fuel consumption which i was so happy about because i had just jumped from an EFI GQ which ate juice for breakfast ,lunch and tea..(21 litres per 100km on average).... Apparently my fuel figures should be around 11 litres per 100km..... I started at 14.2, then got 13.2 and just got 12.9 on my last tank... I am heading in the right direction... I have figured out that it is revs related....._____________________________________________

Keep the motor running and you will be fine.

Many years ago we were doing a driving course in the Army. One of the group was driving an Unimog Truck and we were doing a river crossing across the Murray River near Albury. He lost traction and went off the path and put the truck into deeper water (and a bad angle).

In a panic he switched off the motor. The Instructor screamed at him to keep the motor running - so he turned it back on with interesting results. Not so bad when it's not yours truck and you don't have to pay for the damage.

A valuable lession learn't by all that day.

Karl.Everyone is entitled to have an opinion - just make sure that yours is correct.

I remember getting rained off the road job East of Fitzroy 20 years ago and to get back to Derby we had to cross several sections of the road that was under water.
We just put a tow rope on the sedans, blanket over the front, told them to put them in neutral and keep the revs up, and drove through no problems at all.
Other travellers were left standing either side watching.
They obviously weren't as eager as us to get to the pub!
