  This man has to pay British petrol prices,and he bought a Range Rover..?

  I drove a Range Rover once. *High* centre of gravity. Squidgy suspension. 
  It didn't have quite the same cornering ability as my own humble Audi, let
  alone an Ur-Quattro.

  So the Range Rover wins the pulling contest, and the Audi wins the race. As
  a deciding match, lets have a fiscal endurance contest. The person who can
  drive their vehicle the furthest without going bankrupt is the winner.

  Should be a very fair match.
