Am I missing something? We have a Landcruiser (diesel) and find that many garage pump nozzles will not fit into the dual tank filler necks. They are too big. Is there a trick to it?

Hi Richard and Leonie,
Have had similar experience one servo operator told me the larger nozzle is a quick filler for trucks etc( where the diesel bowsers are seperate) and i should use the pump that is in with the petrol bowsers as it will have the small nozzel
Cheers Kev

I had noticed this and I look for the smaller nozzles but a few garages only have one size. The big one. It's annoying because we have to move on to the next garage. Its OK around home because we know the garages but out of town it's a nuisance. Just thought there might be a trick to it.

Yep....I reckon Kev is on the money ........ I go to a big servo where they have truck bays seperate to the front of house bowsers - B doubles etc often pull in there and like to fill up quick - the nozzle is quite a few mils bigger than the ones often found at servos in general. As Kev says, seems the diesel bowsers in the front of house line-ups are always the small nozzle.... some of the latter are amazingly slow - the truck fillers are amazingly fast !

Ain't it a bugger - some other codger bobs up with the handle Banjo - hasn't taken the hint - raised it with Michelle - they don't have a tool for chucking such imposters off the site - to preserve the value of my good name (last look it was worth sixpence I think) I'll have to go unmasked ........ :-O)

I bought my diesel cruiser new in 2002 and toyota had a recall, they fitted the aussie bound cruisers with the wrong sized filler holes. they retro fitted with the larger sized filler holes to accomodate the larger nozzles. Don"t know if they are still available from toyota.

Nissans can take the truck fillers ok. Sounds like you ARE missing something. LOL

If I had wanted a Nissan I would have bought one. Considering nearly every second post is about problems with Nissans I thought a Cruiser would be better. Time will tell.
Do those lights annoy you flashing all the while?

The lights only annoy me if the relay doesn't work as expected I don't have to often reread my posts here ;-) It is only a graphic play with the pic, am sure you could fold up the undercarriage if you wanted or fire the afterburner.

On the Nissan I was surprised the Yota didn't accept a larger nozzel, I guess they are set up for ULP. Yota guys don't usually hold back on their reccommendations, so for the laugh...........

Jan 2 travelled from Broken Hill to Ballina in a Nissan, 1545km in 16 hours, no problems.

Couldn't have done it if I had to use those slow filling little nozzles the yota guys are stuck with though. :0)))))

I've got a 2000 100 series diesel and the quick fill nozzles fit in OK, so they must have changed them somewhere along the line then fixed up their mistake. The quick fill nozzles are great unless you like filling both tanks right to the top, then it gets a bit messy

The bigger nozzles fit the Prado 90series and the 78/79series too. Hadn't heard of there being a problem with 100series.

I remember when Mitsubishi released the current shaped Pajero, there were a lot of complaints that they'd only take the small nozzle, and I think it migfht have been changed.

Cheers

Pete is on the money.

We had an 02 TD cruiser with same problem and this came to a head in Bordertown SA when I could not locate a small nozzle anywhere in town to fill the tank so had to use funnel.

Being p**sed off with this I headed for the Toyota dealer in town. Woman behind desk gave me that, this bloke must be losing it look as I told her the high flow nozzle would not fit.

On our way out to prove I wasn't losing it her offsider came up with a tech bulletin from Toyota identifying that the specs for diesel and TD's to Australia wrongly prescribed filling nozzles suitable only for petrol engines.

Bordertown Toyota found a replacement for us in Adelaide and we had it fitted when we got there. You should still be able to get it replaced.
