Fill up at Broken Hill as Little Topar is VERY dear, and a good place to fill the vehicle with flies.
As you go into B. Hill I think it's the second roundabout you come to there is a shell outlet on the left. I found the pretty good. If you want diesel you have to turn left as it's around the corner unless been changed.

Cheers P&J

Hello slush/DD,
I have joined as I live 50 metres from the Shell outlet.
Shell Coles fuel outlet is on main highway at third roundabout coming in from the West on the Barrier Highway.

There are pumps for fuel under the carport roof with a max clearance of three metres. If your vehicle is over that you can use the outside pumps next to footpath.

If you turn left at roundabout into Bromide Street there are pumps on end of building.
One of these pumps has a fast flow nozzle for trucks.
This may be tight to access if making a right turn from Bromide Street.
You may need to go to next intersection in Bromide St to do a U turn

Google Street view shows the pumps.

No change still the same. A bit of a bugger to get into when towing.

Is the diesel a high or low flow nozzle? The high flows are a real pain with the 100 series.

I'm pretty sure they have both. Mine will take either.

Fill up at Broken Hill. I went thru there about 10 days ago and loaded up cheaper than my fill up before in Brisbane.
$1.56.9 at Woolies servo from memory.

I prefer the hi-flow pumps when filling my 105 which holds 285 litres using the Toyota fill neck/s.

I would like to use the high flow but the nozzle only just fits into both the main and sub filler and you end up with it switching off every few seconds. Luckily I am never in a rush when in the Toyota. It's a 2005 GXL. That's most probably the difference to the 105.

I checked my record today as I had to refill south of Adelaide. The Broken Hill fuel was 160.9 cpl...not 156.9

The filler for the 100 and 105 would be the same.

I have found if you fill the sub tank 1st..then the main tank farts and gurgles a lot and is slow to fill.

There is something different about them and I just go to the slow ones instead of stuffing around with doing one before the other. We have changed the sub to a dual long ranger and even before than they stuffed up. I may want to fill the sub first to get an accurate measurement of how much I used so why bother. Even the bloke behind the counter had trouble with it. So no more. Easy fixed.

Thanks

we have got cheaper fuel here in Broken Hill you can use woolies or shell which is coles fuel

woolies fuel is turn right at the holden dealer ship as you come into town from Adelaide or if you go straght on past the holden people you will come into the shell

there are several other service stations but they are normally more expensive

if you want and further more detailed information I am happy to help

The Woolies servo is next to a shopping centre (Westside Plazza?) which can be handy for toilets, a coffee or snack and a walk. Obviously Maccas is there as well, but the coffee shops inside are better unless you want free internet.

There is also a BP Service station and a Caltex Serice Station opposite each other on Patton Street over in I think it is called South Broken Hill on the way out to the Airport.

Also whilst over that way drop in and have a Milkshake at Bells Milk Bar which is in Patton Street.
