    Re: 3.0 D4D dpf?

    No DPF on ANY ZA Hiluxes and Fortuners. That includes the D4D and the GD-6 series.

    The D4D and some of the GD6 series engines do have catalytic converters (CATS)

  5. Re: Correct Tyre Pressure (so many conflicting advise)

    Agree 100%, you need to look at cold pressures. If you start on 2.5 bar, chances are that by the end of the trip you will be sitting at 2.7-2.8bar.

    Re: Hilux Vigo Hanging Wire

    That looks like the gearbox breather that lets air in/out. Should be placed up high in order not to suck in water when doing a water crossing.

    Re: Racor diesel fuel filter

    As I understand, the standard Toyota Filter is 7 Micron. So the racor (10 micron) will be less fine than the standard filter. Its main focus is removing suspended water, and not finer filtration
