Hey TB45 owners,
What petrol do you use in your truck? I have been using e10 for the price but wondering if I should switch to U91/95/98. Does it make a different to economy or performance? What have you noticed?
I recently just bought my first patrol, it a 89 duel fuel, and the gas system was completely carked so I got the mechanics to take it out but now I need to find or make a new airbox for the car as it now only runs petrol, anyone know where to buy a new box.
New to the forum sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere. Wondered if anyone has the answer a couple of questions.
I own a 1993 4.2 Petrol GQ, i believe its fitted with a 2" or maybe a 2.5" exhaust system (not sure if its original). The Muffler has rusted through and now has holes. I've...
Hi Everyone, I am looking at replacing some parts in my Maverick. Is there any difference between the patrol or the maverick?
It is a 4.2L petrol manual LWB.

#1 I have an 1990 patrol, Rb30, petrol that ticks when I start the engine, but goes away after it's warmed up. This is caused by the lifters. The ticking I'm concerned about is the constant ticking when idling after it's warm and also while I accelerate. The ticking gets faster the...
I always see threads on egt gauge installs on turbo diesels but has anyone bothered to install an egt gauge on their 4.5 or 4.8 turbo'd or N/A? I was throwing around the idea of installing one in my 4.5 to see the actual difference in exhaust temps between running on LPG and petrol, i also...
About to upgrade from a 2.8 hilux to an early gu. As much as I'd love a 4.2, funds wont allow and a gq is not on the cards.
I do about 80 kilometres a week in the commute to uni and go to the high country a few times a year as well as Wesburn/Toolangi when I can (once or twice a...
I always thought that the diesel motors ran at a higher temperature and therefore needed to have a snorkel more so than a petrol motor - having said that the fact that you will get improved fuel consumption, cleaner air, cools engine temperatures and of course look pretty cool make it an...

I have done a search and can't find any help yet! I am wanting to take out the engine harness from my 4.5 for modification and would like some advice before diving straight in, obviously its connected to computer in the dash? and would rather know what direction to head instead of just...
Patrolliers, Im looking into getting a reusable air filter, such as the K&N or similar.
The only problem is K&N claim to not have have one to suit, however Unifilter do. I am sure that I have read on this forum
Would anyone who has a reusable filter please comment or those who chose not go...
I've got a '84 MQ, which is dual fuel, with a 70L Gas tank in the cargo bay. The problem I'm having is that the range is pretty poor, only about 300km for either the fuel tank or the Gas tank. I'm toying with the idea of taking out the unleaded fuel tank and turning it in a dedicated Gas...
