  1. Hi everyone first time posting. i have recently put a 2.8L (3L) motor in my 99 Hilux. Was. 3.0L (5L) but couldn’t find one for a decent price to replace it when it stopped working on me. All non turbo. my uncle who helped me replace the motor said he had heard of people flushing older diesel fuel systems with either a small amount petrol or kero when servicing. Ever done it himself but said it might be worth finding out Looked around on google and it’s mostly people saying can’t do it with newer ones so here I am seeing if anyone has any advice for me with this area? thanks
  2. Hi guys, I have a 95 Camry 2.2l. I’m just wondering if any of you other XV10 drivers can assist me in your fuel efficiency and what fuel gets the best economy and what range you guys are getting. I’ve been averaging around 11-12l/100km around town and 7-8 on the highway. That’s the same when I use e10 or 98. I try not to put e10 in it as I don’t like how it runs but sometimes the bank balance only calls for e10. And cause I only fill up when I’m empty and put a full tank in cause I just like to do it that way. Thanks
  3. Hi All, Just wondering how other C-HR's are performing fuel wise? Currently I can't get below 7.3L/100km no matter how carefully I drive. I came across a good review where it mentioned they got the test car to match the promoted figure: http://www.carconversation.com.au/reviews/2017-toyota-c-hr-koba-review but I was wondering how everyone else's C-HR was on fuel? Anyone get below 6.4L/100km??
  4. Hello all, I need your help with some info. Those of you that have the TRD Supercharged Aurions, can you please tell me two things? ... 1) What are your air/fuel ratios above 5000rpm to redline? and 2) What is your ignition advance from 5000rpm to redline? Any help with this information would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi guys! I'm new to this forum, vans and also dual fuel which my new (second hand van) currently has! It is a Toyota hiace 1996 with dual fuel. As for engine model and other specifications I am not sure (I pick up the van this Sunday as it is currently getting a roadworthy). However my last few cars I have always serviced myself unless there was a problem that I couldn't fix myself then I would have it checked out. But I have NEVER serviced a dual fuel vehicle or a van. My questions are, Basically what would give me a really good idea with servicing this is what would YOU do/change/check if you were servicing a dual fuel vehicle? (And if you say "change oil", if you could please tell me what kind (may be different because of lpg :/ )) And also is there anything on vans that I would need to lookout for? Anything that wears out more than cars? I have heard something about the radiator needing to be maintained VERY well more so in vans but not sure how true this is... Thanks guys! Any help would be appreciated!
  6. G'day. I'm having a problem with the fuel gauge in my 2000 model hilux(kzn165r). I will fill it up one day, drive 50 k's and it will say half empty. I'll jump in it the next day and it will say it's empty for the first 5minutes of driving, it will then rise up to full and keep rising and lowering as I drive..... Any ideas out there on what it could be?? Cheers
  7. Hey guys, My 2012 Aurion ZR6's cruising range was running low (around 10km) so I put around 15L of petrol in the car, and the cruising range stayed at 15km and is now down to 0 with a quarter tank of petrol. Tried resetting the Average L/100km a couple times but it stayed the same. Any ideas why? Cheers.
  8. Hello, my 2007 VDJ78R_1VD_4.5L V8 single turbo workmate troopy wont start. Starter motor fine, engine cranks ok. Battery good. Glow plug relays, and associated fuses ok. But no fire. Just wont kick. Was running in the last few days. Felt a feint engine surge while driving in third gear. Engine was idling from cold start next morning then shut down by itself. Hasn't been able to start since. Have emptied out currently optioned fuel tank (main) and all looks clean. Changed out fuel filter and re-primed. Still cranks ok, but no fire. Any ideas?
  9. Hi everyone. The topic title says it all, really. If I top up when the fuel light comes on, I can put in only 40 litres. But the spec I've seen on-line is 55 litres. So firstly, does my car really have a 55 litre tank? And if so, why would the fuel light come on with 200 km of range left? Cheers... PS: my first post, and my first corolla!

  11. Hi all, I'm new to the forum and am considering buying a 2000-2005 tarago. The claimed fuel economy for these vehicles is quite good. The details shown on Carsales show the fuel economy for 2000-2001 models to be 10 litres per 100k urban and 6.6 litres per 100k extra urban. The later models, 2004 etc are shown with what seems to be more realistic 10.5litres per 100k combined. Can any of you tarago owners give me some real world feedback as to the economy you get? Thanks in advance for your help!
  12. Hi All, I'm on a waiting list for a GTS, manual, black storm. Ordered October, touted February, now looking May. Drove a friend's GTS today which they have had for two months. Obviously the car is friggin awesome and I can't wait for mine but here are two issues I learnt. My friend mentioned that they have had their car looked at a few times now for a clicking sound which turns out to be related to poor fuel quality. Service department advised her to use only 98 octane and only BP. The cars are struggling with 95 even though 95 is listed as entry level ok. Apparently there is a fix being worked on to avoid the issue for both new cars and already sold. It's not so easy to get 98 or a BP outside of metro areas. Anyone have any more or better information? My friend mentioned that the Service department said that they are still learning about the 86 themselves. I guess a bit of scrambling will be going on for a while to build up knowledge and expertise. Also, some clunkyness and issues related to the sat nav etc are well documented but one mega pain in the butt was that even though the GPS was turned off and audio muted, the sat nav lady voice would not shut up. Every new speed zone, she let me know and what is worse is that most of her speed alerts were wrong. System seems to treat every local street as a 50 zone, even though more main roads are 60 and while I was driving down the M1 which is 100 and 110, sometimes she was advising that the speed was 60 which was the parallel local street on the otherside of the acoustic wall. There probably is a way to shut her up but it wasn't easy to work out, and we didn't work it out. The sat nav manual is thicker than the entire car manual and I am not looking forward to setting it up but fingers crossed the alerts can be muted without muting the stereo and that the system isn't as horribly unintuitive as reported. The US Scion has a Pioneer system and extra speakers standard. I thought I knew everything about this car but one new feature I saw today is that when you open and shut the doors, once the door is shut, the windows auto down an inch and straight back up to reset the air pressure. In the Australian 86 there is a blank button at top right of dash. This is for relevant markets to switch between mph and kmph. Also, to the right of the dash light dimming wheel, there is a space. In the Australian BRZ and international 86, this is a headlight angle wheel. Not sure why the Australian 86 has opted out. Three cool finds... extra charger in glove box up high... can access air filters through glove box for replacing... boot release available from inside the boot. Have spoken to a few different Toyota dealers about what accessories from other models can be added to the 86. Suprisingly of all models, the 86 cannot get the wireless tyre monitoring. One dealer said the lock nuts can be added but another one said they couldn't. But both dealers said the blue floor lighting from the Camry can be added. Apart from the cameras and parking sensors, are there any other Toyota accesories from other models available or worth getting on the 86? Keen to know too if there is an 86 Club in Brisbane ie for convoy road trips etc? Thanks! :-)
  13. Hi everyone, I just converted my Toyota Vienta 3VZ-FE to run on Sprintgas LPG. I have no idea which kit was fitted into my car. I got a really good deal from a local installer. About $500 out of pocket after the Victorian government rebate. The system installed is a single point vapour injection system. The LPG vapour is fed at the throttle body. I lost nearly half my boot space because of the tank. I didn't opt for the donut tank that some people fit into the spare wheel bay because that would have cost me $300 extra. That being said, I usually only drive by myself or with one passenger. I have the backseat to put all my stuff. The LPG-Petrol switch is located near the fuse box. There was a blank fascia plate which made it convenient for the installer. He didn't have to do any cutting of my dash. Performance wise, you can feel that you need to put your foot down more than usual to get the car going. The low end torque that we love so much about the 3VZ is not there. I found that the power increase is now a much straighter curve towards the higher revs. I think I will need my LPG mechanic to tune my AFM such that I get back the lower torque bump. That being said, I'm used to only revving up to 3k to get off the line to 80kmh which is the speed I usually drive at in suburban areas. Cruising on the highway is no problem at all. I had an issue with the LPG gas causing the engine to idle too low. When I was decelerating from 80kmh, somehow the overdrive/4th gear didn't change up and that caused the engine to stall. Thank goodness I was approaching a red light. Happened another time when I was turning a corner. I brought it back to the LPG installer and he put in a balance line running from the airbox to the LPG mixer. I also decided to change my sparks to the NGK LPG plugs. The loss of low end power was reduced after I switched the spark plugs. I ran my first tank of LPG to zero and then filled it up. It came up to 46.44 litres of LPG. I'm assuming my tank is a 55 litre tank. I am still running on my first full tank of LPG so I'll update you guys on the milelage later on. I'm currently at 200km at the fuel gauge on the switch is showing 2 out of 4 green lights. (red light = reserve). Hopefully I'll get up to 350km from 40 litres of LPG. With an 8cent discount from Coles/Shell, I am about 58.9 cents per litre of LPG. Works out to be less than $25 for a full tank of LPG.
