    Early June (Moab/RimRocker/SE Utah) Trip - Need Recs

    Personally, I think it is way too much. I would at least cut the places you are trying to go in half and try to keep the them fairly close to each other. All of the places you mentioned are fantastic (I have not been to Rimrocker). You could easily spend days in any of the single areas you...

    What is Your Highway 'Steady State' Mileage Average?

    On my 2013 LX570 at 70, on fairly flat, low altitude interstates I can get 19-20 MPG. This is with regular gas. If I speed up 10 mph, the fuel economy drops significantly--16-17 mpg. Towing a 5,000 pound travel trailer on same interstates, below 70 mph, about 10 mpg. My vehicle is totally...

    Builds The Oddball 80 - Middle East GX Renovation

    There might be another scenario. When I looked up Lamar Stewart, in Louisiana this came up. https://www.linkedin.com/in/lamar-stewart-20608a92 Greenwell springs is just out of Baton Rouge. He apparently worked for Aramco at some point/points. I wonder if the fellow bought it overseas and then...

    Builds The Oddball 80 - Middle East GX Renovation

    The circular decal may correspond to the Gregorian year 1996-97 with the twelve month around it. My daughter is fluent in arabic and I sent her a message to try to translate--it may be a while before I get a response.

    Who to get yota parts from now that American Toyota doesn't ship?

    It was sort of sad yesterday, physically went to American Toyota for an 80 series air filter and was told they did not stock old parts like that. How things have changed.

    Towing a 2000lb teardrop

    In a non Turbocharged 80, the Eisenhower tunnel has always been a bear for me. The last time up, I was barely able to get up to 25 after a Prius caused me to come to a near complete stop; on the way up to the Eisenhower Tunnel. I imagine he was trying to optimize the angle of a solar panel or...

    I don't get on mud much anymore. Here is the link to my 2006 installation. Man-A-Fre 24 gallon auxilliary tank

    Intermittent starting

    I would definitely change the fusible link. It is simple fix and can be the originator of much anguish. In the US, it is about £16--likely much higher where you are located. It is a 5 minute process to change it.

    Need a suggestion - battery

    They all fail, some quicker than others. My friendly neighborhood NAPA has been great and in if a battery fails even install the size 31's. I have had very bad luck with Optima, ok luck with Costco (one hour drive and no installation) and better luck with NAPA. Go the easiest route.

    Charcoal Canister - Great Option!

    I couldn't get one today at AutoZone and ordered one from NAPA from the Delco numbers. It will likely be about $70 when the dust clears. Just came back from Colorado and Utah, my auxiliary gas tank was having real problems being pumped to primary tank. It seems to be working at near sea...

    Diesel 80 or diesel 60, for our second vehicle? We have a gas 80.

    I have been a front passenger of a LHD vehicle in a RHD country. When the driver moved out to take look, as in passing a truck, my pulse went up considerably. :-)

    Most likely--I had my '94 in earlier this month.

    Mechanic near Valley/Auburn

    I ended up going to Auburn Generators. They seem very knowledgeable. The '94 is not out yet, awaiting AC and tune up parts. They found a non functioning ejector and replaced it and I decided to get it tuned too.

    Do they do work other than AC's and starters? Need to have somebody trouble shoot the CEL code 25, don't have time to try.
