Hi All
I've been a lurker on ExplorOz since I got my hands on an '81 Fj60 -2F with 155K on the clock(genuine as far as I can tell) a month ago. I call her Rocinante (after Don Quixote's horse - I intend to to a lot of travelling in/on her evein if I don't find too many windmills to tilt at).
Being the cautious type, I asked Toyota if I could run on ULP because the previous owner told me he'd always used LRP/Super. Got the answer today (via email, from a bod in Toyota Customer Relations).
He said that the 2F/3F is fine with ULP, but suggested that I get the motor tuned "shortly after changing to ULP".
With the price of LRP in Augusta over Easter close to $1.30 per litre I'm now smiling again.

My daughter has just finished going down this road with her Subaru.

She found some good info at aip.com.au

Do a search within the site, and find out what, if any additives you will need.

Good luck.

This is the link to the AIP website and Yes, FJ, your 2f motor is on the list of approved engines for running unleaded fuel.

Even still, it would be cheap insurance to run a valve saver kit.
