Just got off the phone to a Landscaper friend, who was telling me he has just clocked up 697,000ks on his

Toyota hilux 2wd ute. Its looking like a head gaskets on the way out, but all in all not a bad result for the work its done........Just maybe its the Penrite oil he's used since

G'day Axle
That is a pretty good run for a working vehicle, not sure it can be attributed to any particular oil though, ha ha. A few years back I met a bloke who used a Camry for debt collection and so did many kms each year. When meeting him the Camry had done 660,000km. We subsequently serviced the vehicle, replaced seats and suspension from that time, kms went up and one day a few years later, he arrived and ODO showed over the 1,000,000km. Motor and auto had never been apart. Never seen others like it though.

G'day Axle,
I had the same 2.7L engine in my 4wd Hilux that I sold a few years ago.
Had 450,000 on the clock & did not use any oil between services.
Thirsty motor for its size but apart from standard services never had a problem with it.
I hope my replacement Dmax serves me as well.

Hi, i heard the 2.7 is just as shortened the 4.5 fzfe used in Landcruisers ,with two cylinders off the block sorta.
High Klm can come down to how you drive(like Nana?) or treat the car as well i guess.
seen an old 2.6 petrol Pagero with 550000klm and Camry with 500000klm.
I guess it also depends how quick you click over the klm, 500000klm could take some people over 20 years , by then the paint is gone and the rest looks pretty average! and probably the average person wants to update every 3/5 years or so.allot off cars get scrapped well before the engine is gone?

I only ever made one mistake
and that's when I thought I was wrong!

About fifteen years ago I was at an NRMA damaged car auction. Two of the cars to be sold were two identical Commodores siting side by side with no sign of any body damage or water damage stickers on them. I think the only reason they were in that type of auction was each one had done just over 700,000 k's
