I went on to work at Perkins Engines in Shrewsbury building CV12 Challenger and CV8 Warrior engines as well as the 12ltr inline 6 Eagle engine that was used in the Alvis CET and Leyland/Foden DROPS.......the injector pipes were a pain to fit and some of the blokes didn't like doing them, it was said they suffered from a condition called "DROPS Avoidance".

If you have a Series Land Rover it won't matter if the pumps at the garage are fried because you have already shown that you are no millennial snowflake and are thus smart enough to lever up the tank covers and dip a bucket on a string into the go juice. It's a piece of high technology that we pre-Igeneration call "a well'

And there was me thinking you could just cut the underside of all the useless fried cars fuel lines and drain it out from under the abundance of non EMP-Proof cars...
