    My Landrover is a diesel so once it's going it will happily chug along with no battery (you won't have any leccy items working mind). I just bought a Bosch battery for £125 seems to do the trick
    Modern ones won't! And £125 is bloody expensive for a battery, I paid £30 for a new battery for my brother's 206 and the cranking requirements of a Landy aren't that much greater.

    That's because diesels use glow plugs (for start up only)not spark plugs
