Hi,
I want to ask about 60 series fuel tank recall to Australian 60 series owner.
I know all 60 series land cruiser in USA was recalled because of fuel tank problem.
How about in Australia ?
Is it same with USA ? or not ?
If there's Australian user who already done this recall, inform me about your procedure was.

Thank you,

Oh, Min Seok

I don't know about Australia, but I doubt they had the same recall. The USA tank recall was because of a defective EPA mandated fuel vapor system that causes large pressure swings inside the tank. Eventually this fatigues the tank, popping it apart at the seams.

Thank you Jim,
The reason why I ask this question is figure out my situation.
I required Toyota Korea about fuel tank recall and I receive phone call from them about part arrival.
But arrived part is fuel tank for 3FE, not fuel tank for my 3F motor.
So, I asked again and they said that as a case of FJ62, only FJ62 which equiped with 3FE motor was racalled.
I can't agree with their explain that I asked this.

Thank you,

Oh, Min Seok

ps, What means HTH ? Could you please tell me ?
In this forum, I always have difficulty about abbreviations because I'm not native english speaker. :)

Your 3F truck probably has only basic emission control system, about like an Aussie truck from the 1980's. No problem with fuel tank overpressure and failure.

The 3FE truck probably have a more restrictive emission system that causes the fuel tank fatigue failure.

HTH = Hope This Helps.

Somewhere down under
I'm from aus and have never heard of the recall till i read this site ;)

Probably as someone said to do with emissions. We have very lackluster emission standards here - mainly on older vehicles and diesels, but it's slowly getting harsher. (not as harsh as it sounds in some us states though. most standards aren't forced on cars built before the standard came in)

Thank you for your information,
It means that carburetor 3F motor powered FJ62 also have same recall campaign as well as 3FE powered FJ62.(Because no 3FE powered FJ62 were sold in Aus.)
FJ60 and 62s which sold outside of USA have only very basic emission control equipments usually.
So, it means that fuel tank may fails with or without emission related environment.

Thank you again.

Oh, Min Seok
