    Re: Help me listen

    I couldn't catch everything, but here's what I heard:

    Reporter: This Land Rover is ten years old.
    Asian man: Yes.
    R: And it's got a straightforward diesel engine, and you haven't ????? anything
    A: ????? diesel engine.
    R: And you're running your biofuel.
    A: Yep, it's been running on biodiesel for the last four years.
    R: Wow. No performance (stroke???)
    A: No. All ????? biodiesel is supposed to have, like a 3% drop in efficiency, but as far as I'm concerned, I ????? normally fill it up once a week. I don't fill anything ?????
    R: What about ????? when you need a torque? Any difference there?
    A: No, there's not much difference in off-roading. In fact, I've got this vehicle and enough fuel to power a three-day trip into the rainforest in Malaysia, and never got stuck.

    I'm not sure about the ????? parts.
