They cost about $100 and can be easily installed by a home handyperson.
Work great and allow one to see the how the fuel system is going via the glass bowl.

Simon,
I paid $100 the same as Roger and fitted it myself, it's easy and you also know it was done you as you wanted it done. Your choice, 4140 is getting up there.Keep the shiny side up

$110 from Don Kyatts in Sydney.
Easy to fit, just a spin on adaptor(like the original filter) so the CAV filters can be used.

Because the standard CAV/Lucas filter is nominal 5 Micron (as opposed to 15? micron for the OEM), I was advised by injection engineer to instal 2 stand alone units in parallel on my diesel landcruiser.

Apparently Toyota lift mechanism is susceptible to too much vacuum.
Can't comment on the Patrol though.

PS It is possible to buy a longer CAV filter (than the standard 711 296)
It has more media & therefore flows better (at lower vacuum) - Don't know the number but obviously requires a longer centrebolt.

PPS Most long distance truck part outlets can supply similar (Donaldson/ Fleetguard) filters at very reasonable prices (I bought ten non-genuine 711 296 for $4.50ea. GST Incl.
