Re: '01 VX 3.4l V6 - What fuel

Use 95. It makes a difference after 3/4 tanks of fuel. Also mine started better hot or cold with 95 in the tank. I just felt mine was much smoother all round with 95 in the tank. I could do 650 on a 90l tank of fuel with 95. Anything less i battled to get more than 550 on a tank. Sent from my iPhone...

The Prado 120 is a seriously under rated vehicle. However they are heavy and the diesel motor does take time to get used to. They cruise well at the speed limit, but they take time to get there and when towing or heavy loaded you will feel it struggle a bit. The 4.0V6 is a gem of a engine. You can c...
