Can someone recommend a good diesel workshop in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne?
After the 20,000 km service on my 2008 '76 Wagon, done at the local Toyota dealer came in at $848, I've decided I'd rather not go back there!!

Otherwise, I can report the car is behaving as expected, not using oil and I'm still averaging 11.6 kms per 100 kms around the suburbs. However, the speedo and therefore I suspect the odo is under reading by almost exactly 10% - i.e. at an indicated 110 kph I'm actually doing 100 according to the GPS. Thats on the standard tyres and rims and the problem goes away when I switch wheels to the BFG muddies which are about 1.5" taller.

Anyway, a good mechanic reference would be very much appreciated. Cheers

If you want the best in the east, try Aaron at ATOC auto's in Belgrave South. Great reputation and I can vouch for both his knowledge of diesels and more so, 4x4 vehicles. Ph 03 97542751.

Cheers Mick
