I have a 100 series Toyota Landcruiser 1998 build and I have always had problems with the fuel tank. First started when I thought that the main 95 litre tank would only take about 73 litres??

Now the tank has a hole in it. Mechanic states that it is caused by the breather hose blocking and in the Landcruiser, the tanks will be sucked in and thus making them smaller. Which explains the problem I have had.

2 questions. 1. Anyone else heard of the above issue. and 2. anyone have an idea of where to get a new main tank to replace it and any idea of the cost.

the wreckers, clean it out with jet fuel a-1. just a finer grade of kero, put a pressure cleaner through it and blow out with air hose. if you can.

In reply to Q1, have seen it an HJ75 ute sub-tank. Breather in the chassis rail blocked up with dust/sand that got concreted. Lift pump sucked it in and it split along a fold.
The giveaway is the whoossh when undo the filler cap.
I thought that with the wagons (HJ60, anyway) the breather was inside the rear quarter panels so blockages would be a rare event.

Also seen a GQ tank with only a 30 litre capacity after a blocked breather.

A wreckers would be the go, 100 series are not that old so most in the wrecking yards should all be in reasonable condition.
Expect to pay 100 to 200 S/H
Or 500 to 900 new.
